Publisher's Summary

A landmark birthday brings back memories - not all of them happy. Poppy was about to be 80, and to celebrate the whole family is gathering. Bossy daughter Beryl and her meek husband Rodney; son Richard and his partner Graham; high-flying Maria and her rich husband Mervyn; and assorted grandchildren, even one great-grandchild, Daisy, would all be converging on her South Coast home. Poppy's mind goes back over her life - to her tough childhood, to her three husbands, and to Alan, the great love of her life who was taken from her by the war. She had a lot fuller life than her family realised. As they toast their beloved matriarch, little do they know what an extraordinary and often shocking life she has led . . .
