Patricia’s marriage of eleven years is over. Despite her doubts about the arrival of Brian, a dog who has become a father-substitute for her ten year old daughter Rachel, Patricia is more than ready for a fulfilled life as a single parent. But then the matchmaking begins. Even her most trusted friends are determined to provide her with potential lovers, all of whom she skilfully manages to avoid – that is until Roland, who is deeply unsuitable, arrives on the scene.
“Why Mavis Cheek is not as celebrated as Joanna Trollope or Mary Wesley is a mystery. She’s got everything they have, in spades. If anything, she’s an improvement on them, in that her sense of humour is wicked and her literary allusions wider.” Observer
