In this addictive short story collection, twenty very different women reach a pivotal moment in their lives.
A widow is liberated by a new job, but keeps it secret from her family. A date in suburbia has dramatic results. A seamstress takes revenge on an unsuspecting customer, while in France, a mother is promised ‘fantastic news’ – and lets her imagination run away with her.
With each story, JENNY ECLAIR introduces a fascinating new character. And behind each woman lies a gripping tale – of betrayal, of love, of hope and defiance.
Funny, heart-breaking, inspiring – and packed with wicked one liners – this wonderful collection shows Jenny Eclair’s exceptional talent for observation at its very best.
Based on the BBC Radio 4 series Little Lifetimes.
