Description
Kate is in her fifties, recently widowed, and coping with the difficulties -- and occasional pleasures -- of flying solo. Helped and hindered in equal measures by her delightful but wicked old mother-in-law Cicely, she finds new strengths and must face undiscovered weaknesses. But when her daughter is estranged by her husband, Kate finds herself forced into a role she cannot assume, and realizes it is time to step outside her family's preconceived notions. What follows is a delightful story of the relationships and unspoken power between four generations of women.

display_descriptionKate Rendlesham has spent most of her life being someone's wife, mother, or grandmother. In her fifties and recently widowed, she lives on a Yorkshire estate bustling with family, including high-strung daughter Joanna, three grandchildren, and her crotchety yet delightful mother-in-law. When Joanna's husband leaves her, everyone expects Kate to play the supportive mother role while Joanna reconstructs her life. But Kate has other plans, Lately, she's bursting with new dreams. It all began when she stumbled upon a house and immediately fell in love with it. Every nook and cranny seemed special. And meeting the owner, self-made millionaire Jack Morley, is an unexpected surprise. But Jack has his own grand plans--for the house, for his future, and for Kate.
