After losing her job and learning she might also lose her house because of a bad investment, Jess, a fiercely independent and hilariously wry BC grandma, resorts to growing pot in her basement to make ends meet. She then has to juggle her public life as a grandmother and member of the town’s senior women’s group – The Company of Crones – with her secret life as a pot grower. The unusual characters she meets along the way include Swan, the enigmatic young woman who introduces her to the grower’s world, and Marcus, the socially awkward “gardener” who shows her the tricks of the trade. Both of her new young friends are more than they appear, and Jess’ adventures in pot growing break down barriers in both her old and new circles. The delightful outcome of an almost legitimate business leaves Jess and her associates flushed with success.

Jennifer Craig's "Jess" is a lot like her; a wicked Yorkshire lass who's pluck and humour pack trouble into an old kit bag, and this time the bag is bursting with green. Survival of an old crone at her best.

Anne DeGrace

Jess is the feisty, funny, opinionated, can’t-keep-her-down-for-long "crone" we all hope to become. In this rollicking tale of desperate ingenuity, Jess shows us that you’re never too old to grow.
