I was enthralled by this book and Sisteria which is another "must read". Any bored housewife (which I hasten to add I am not!) who lives in North London can relate to the landmarks, the way of life and the daily turmoil of everyday life. I could relate to the main character, empathise with the husband, thoroughly dislike the younger (successful, scheming) sister and well as for the love interest - I blushed on the train! A great book and thoroughly recommended! 10 out of 10.

Right from the start, this book is funny and touching, I think every mother jewish or not could relate to this womens fears, tribulations, and angst! The mother figure was a special favourite of mine, one I could relate to. Have just discoverd the lovely Sue I will certainly be keeping a eye open for more of this great wit, humor, with her distinct ability to have a great look on life and see the funny side..great..read it ..what can i say
