This is a sequel to 'The Two of us'. Really enjoyed it. Ms hancock is a great narrator of her own personal story after the death of John Thaw.
Such a well balanced and entertaining book written by one who has successfully journeyed through bereavement to emerge as a person who has worked hard to become able and ready to pick up and enjoy life albeit as an 'older' 'single' lady. Sheila writes with insight on just how difficult it can be to engage with society and friends after the death of a loved one, but also her insights help to speak into how it can be for anyone who lives life alone whether by choice or circumstances. A jolly good entertaining, very well read book that is sure to entertain.

I admire Sheila Hancock for her acting & really enjoyed her previous book about her life with John Thaw. She pulled no punches then & doesn't in this book about learning to live without John. She is frank about grief but also able to celebrate joy. Also frank about he relationship with her daughters ie becoming clingy & feeling sorry for herself but coming through it & building something stronger. The 'surprising' part was her visits to Hungary & Germany & her graphic re-telling of the uprisings in the 1950s & how man Germans have or in some cases have not adjusted since the end of WW2.
Above all I loved her optimism & determination to live the final years of her life to the full. THIS BOOK IS WELL WORTH READING.
