Description

'Honest, funny, clever, it sparkles with witty, wry observations on modern life. I loved it' Marian KeyesTreat yourself to the heartwarming, hilarious new novel from Sunday Times bestseller Cathy Kelly!

Freya Abalone has a big, messy, wonderful family, a fantastic career, and a new house.

But that's on the outside.

On the inside, she's got Mildred - the name she's given to that nagging inner critic who tells us all we're not good enough.

And now Freya's beloved blended family is under threat. Dan's first wife Elisa, the glamorous, manipulative woman who happily abandoned her daughter to Freya and Dan's care and left the country, has elbowed her way back into their lives.

But Freya knows that when life gives you lemons, you throw them right back.

Can Freya put her family - and herself - back together? Find out in Cathy Kelly's warmest, wisest and funniest book yet...
