Publisher's Summary

Newly widowed Poppy Shilling should be feeling distraught at the death of her husband, Phil. But, instead, she can’t help feeling relieved. No longer will she have to endure Phil’s iron fist ruling over her and their two young children, or his unfortunate penchant for Lycra cycling wear.
And when a secret is revealed after his death, Poppy’s memories of their life together are turned upside down. Freed from her loveless marriage, Poppy is determined not to make the same mistakes again.
As she embraces village life to the full, will Poppy have the courage to follow her heart? It’s time for a new beginning, and a chance to discover what real love feels like….
Alison Reid reads this hilarious, heartwarming novel from bestselling author Catherine Alliott.

Easy listening. Enjoyable characters.

This book was thoroughly enjoyable. There were twists and turns and each character was introduced and upheld beautifully by Alison Reid. A delightful listen.
