Publisher's Summary

Stella and her mother-in-law, Margie, are two very different women. Stella is kind, compassionate and a little chaotic. Margie is prickly and demanding, with bitter memories of the past. When Margie needs help recovering from a major operation, she reluctantly returns to the family farm, where for decades, until Stella's arrival, she was the one in charge.

But the two women gradually form an unlikely bond, as the ambitions, secrets, and tragedies that have shaped their lives are slowly uncovered....

I loved this story

I heard a review of this book on the radio late one night driving home from work and knew I would love it. The story did not disappoint at all, I thoroughly enjoyed it and didn’t want it to end. I work with the elderly and found a great attachment to Margie. Highly recommended.

Pleasantly surprised

Ok, I’ll admit part of the attraction of this book was my name was in the title. Fortunately my vanity was rewarded and I really enjoyed this story. Seeing things from the perspective of an elderly mother in law and her daughter in law was illuminating and entertaining. Both characters have flaws but are warm and likeable. My only criticism is the narrator of Stella’s character was wooden in parts, but that might be due to the Australian accent! Highly recommend if you enjoy stories about messy relationships and forgiveness.
