The Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller: 'Moggach is at the height of her powers with this book' Sunday Times

'Unputdownable, fun and tender with characters that jump off the page. Perfection' Marian Keyes

'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 and Tulip Fever, 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.
