What do you do as a single parent when your kids don't want to share you with anyone elseexcept the person you least want? Single mother Tess is used to having to fight for her disabled son's rights, and is wary of getting too close to men. But Dan, at 17, is more independent than she realizes, to the extent that he has taken it upon himself to bring his parents back together whether Tess wants it or not. Meanwhile, to their Yorkshire town moves Jack, a widower with a mountain of baggage and a stroppy teenage daughter sitting atop it. In this sparkling novel Donna Hay tackles tough issues with warm-hearted comedy as she writes about love and families, and learning to live with the cards you've been dealt, and being some kind of hero.
