"A comic gem" (Alexander McCall Smith) about a housewife who kisses her chintz and her cheating husband goodbye Constance Harding lives in a picture perfect house. She is, however, absolutely clueless about the real world, e.g., *why her twenty-five-year-old son still hasn't found a nice girl, *why her Lithuanian housekeeper's thongs keep turning up in her husband's study, and *why her teenage daughter is dressed in head-to-toe spandex . . .
When disaster strikes, she flees her comfortable nest. Constance is about to discover a wider world she thought it was too late to find. And she's putting it all in her blog-thingy.

Review quote

"The endearingly clueless Constance Harding brings all of her generous good intentions to bear on solving the problems of those around her. What results are the hilarious misadventures of a hopelessly well-bred Englishwoman, an insightful commentary on our times, and a wonderfully messy tale of friendship, parenthood and love."

--Juliette Fay, author of Deep Down True and Shelter Me
