Publisher's Summary

Is it ever too late to change?

After a health scare, 77-year-old Barbara goes to convalesce in the sleepy Somerset village of Winsleigh Green with her sister, Pauline, who is now a widow. The sisters are like chalk and cheese - Barbara, outspoken and aloof and Pauline, good-natured and homely - so it’s not long before the tension starts to rise. 

But when Pauline accidentally knocks down a vagrant who goes by the name of Bisto Mulligan, the ladies find themselves with another houseguest. As he recovers, it becomes apparent that Bisto is not who he first seemed, and as the sisters get to know the kind and courageous man he really is, it’s clear Bisto has the potential to change both of their lives.

As the spring turns to summer and Winsleigh Green comes to life, can the three friends make the changes they need to, to embrace fresh starts, new loves, new lives and new horizons? Or do old habits die too hard? 

Funny, joyful and with a spring in its step that reminds you to live every day like it’s your last. Judy Leigh has once again written the perfect feel-good novel for all fans of Dawn French, Dee MacDonald and Cathy Hopkins.

Completely delightful!

It has been some time since I read a book that was such a joy! The characters were lovely, the humor invasive, the story line delightful and the performance excellent. I will certainly be listening to the rest of this author's works.

Laugh out loud funny

Thoroughly enjoyed this novel, although I did wonder how Pauline kept her temper with Babs! A very good read.
