Laura and her daughter Marina suffer from painful social anxiety. It doesn't help that they are obliged to live with three ancient Hungarian relatives who embarrass them at every turn.
I wouldn't say this is a great book but it's an enjoyable read. The three old ladies are wonderful creations, the writing is sharp and funny and the plot keeps moving along nicely. I agree that the ending is a bit improbable but the author wisely left some questions open rather than tying everything up too neatly.
