A captivating, challenging and uplifting story of the strength of the human heart - newly available in ebook for the first time
Jilly is facing a crisis - several, in fact. Long-widowed and 40-something, she has a mother-in-law from hell, a loving but terminally-ill father, and a daughter whom, despite being her pride and joy, she cannot stop fretting about. Then, all in one day, her father dies and Chloe reveals - in typically shocking fashion - that she is pregnant.
Too much at once for some, but Jilly is a fighter and knows that she is surrounded by people she loves - including best friend Sue, wayward Chloe and the wonderful, sexy Elliott, Jilly's partner in lust and life.
With everything going on, suddenly, Jilly feels the time has come to take stock and create a future of her own . . .
