Happy weekend all!
Excited to share my review for this charming uplifting story that made me feel good about being alive!
The Old Girls’ Network
Is it ever too late to change…
After a health scare, 77 year-old spinster Barbara goes to convalesce in the sleepy Somerset village of Winsleigh Green with her sister Pauline, who is now a widow. The sisters are like chalk and cheese – Barbara, outspoken and aloof and Pauline, good natured and homely – so it’s not long before the tension starts to rise.
But when Pauline accidentally knocks down a vagrant who goes by the name of Bisto Mulligan, the ladies find themselves with another houseguest. As he recovers, it becomes apparent that Bisto is not who he first seemed, and as the sisters get to know the kind and courageous man he really is, it’s clear Bisto has the potential to change both of their lives.
As the spring turns to summer, and Winsleigh Green comes to life, can the three friends make the changes they need to, to embrace fresh starts, new loves, new lives and new horizons. Or do old habits die too hard?
Funny, joyful and with a spring in its step that reminds you to live every day like it’s your last. Judy Leigh has once again written the perfect feel-good novel for all fans of Dawn French, Dee MacDonald and Cathy Hopkins.
A true gem! Judy Leigh has written a charming story full of quirk and wit. Barbara and Pauline are sisters. They have never really gotten along and could not be more different. Pauline comes to live with Barbara as she convalesces after an ailment. Barbara is caring and loving and lives in a delightful little village. When the sisters literally run into Bisto he livens things up a bit. So will Barbara and Pauline repair their fractured relationship?
A fun uplifting story. I loved the relationship between the sisters and how it evolved throughout the course of the book. The residence of Winsley were so lively and welcoming, I seriously wanted to go visit. This is just one of those books that makes you feel good about being alive! Sweet and satisfying.
