Once upon a time, Jacks Morgan had dreams. She would have a career and travel the world. She would own a house on the beach, and spend long nights with her boyfriend strolling under the stars. But life had other ideas. First Martha came along, then Jonty. Then her elderly mother moved in, and now their little terrace in Weston-super-Mare is bursting at the seams.

Jacks gave up on her dreams to look after her family. If only, just for once, her family would look after her…

What we think of this book & ideas for gifting

This is an emotional and affecting family drama that's also hugely entertaining. Ideal for women (and men!) who may not regularly read but would sympathise with Jacks' love for her family as well as her frustration at its burdens and responsibilities.
