“Really enjoyed this book, I laughed, I cried and was hooked from the first page to the last, you think you know what is going to happen next and then it takes a different way. All the characters are very strong and believable and lovable even the some of the villains.” ~ Amazon review
On Andy Paulcroft’s writing: “The characters are likeable and it is easy to read with some very interesting, humourous, original descriptions. Hard to explain, but I really like the author’s style. It is very easy going.” ~ Amazon review
BLURB: Deirdre Cossette is the self appointed carer for the elderly on The Avenue and all of her friends have stories to tell. Margery, whose comfortable life was destroyed by a knock on the door. Stan, who made a mistake as a young footballer which cost him his friends and his self-respect. Marina, whose slim and stylish figure hides a terrible secret from the summer of Live Aid. And, Oliver and Archie, who have survived everything from post war homophobia to a family tragedy – and they have done it together.
Deirdre believes that everyone should have a choice. If they want to live on a diet of cakes, drink the alcoholic equivalent of a small hydrotherapy pool, or take on a toy boy lover in spite of a dodgy heart, Deirdre believes it is their right to do so. If they remember her in their wills afterwards, that’s not her fault, is it? However, not everyone agrees with her. When disgruntled relatives from the present meet up with disgruntled ghosts from her past, Deirdre discovers the cost of being kind.
