But when her mother Jocelyn, residing in shabby splendour in a crumbling house on a clifftop in Cornwall, becomes ill, Alice and the family goes to look after her.What she finds there appals her: her glorious childhood home falling into decay. Noel, helpfully, thinks Jocelyn should offload the house (Shes sitting on a goldmine, you know) and move into sensible sheltered accommodation. But their children love the freedom and beauty that they discover in Cornwall, and Alice begins to wonder whether her chosen way of life is necessarily the right one . . .Readers love Judy Astley:Warm, funny and unerringly true to life Katie FfordeA laugh out loud read Womans OwnWickedly funny Daily MailA lively laughter-packed riot of a story Heat
