Marie may be 'getting on a bit' but it's certainly not getting her down.

Her family around her and a man who loves her means that life is good - but nothing stays the same for long.

Marie's golden years are filled with as much drama - love, laughter and tears - as ever. Which just goes to show that getting on a bit does not mean giving up - or even growing up.

Review quote

'Funny, often agonisingly sad - and familiar' The Lady. * Lady * 'Ironside continues to mine her seam of silver-haired humour ... This latest rage against the dying of the light will win new fans and delight the old' Daily Mail. * Daily Mail * 'Witty and affectionate, wise but never pious, this is a delightfully irreverent look at growing older' The Spectator. * Spectator * [Ironside's] style of writing is endearing, her escapades laugh-out-loud funny, her thoughts and feeling often poignant [and] her observations pin sharp * Choice Magazine on (No! I Don't Need Reading Glasses) *
