''Moggach is at the height of her powers with this book, which moves from a beautifully observed comedy of middle-class life to an immensely moving celebration of two imperfect marriages'' Sunday Times
An unforgettable novel about age, caring and with a twist you won''t see coming...
''A cracking, crackling social comedy, with some brilliant observations about ageing and a devilish plot twist'' The Times
From the bestselling author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a deliciously funny, poignant and wry novel, full of surprising twists and turns:
James is getting on a bit and needs full-time help. So Phoebe and Robert, his middle-aged offspring, employ Mandy, who seems willing to take him off their hands. But as James regales his family with tales of Mandy''s virtues, their shopping trips and the shared pleasure of their journeys to garden centres, Phoebe and Robert sense something is amiss.
Then something extraordinary happens which throws everything into new relief, changing all the stories of their childhood - and the father - that they thought they knew so well.
''A world full of charm, warmth and pitch-perfect humour...punctuated by Moggach''s blistering truths about the sorrowful threads that bind families together'' Sunday Express
''Joyous'' Daily Mail
