A fantastic Maeve Binchy – written specially for the World Book Day Quick Reads promotion.

‘Her storytelling ability is second to none’ SUNDAY EXPRESS

‘It’s little wonder that Maeve Binchy’s bewitching stories have become world-beaters’ OK MAGAZINE


‘Maeve Binchy is a master storyteller’ NEW YORK TIMES

Dee loves her children very much, but now they are all grown up, shouldn’t they leave home?

Rosie moved out when she got married, but it didn’t work out, so now she is back with her parents. Helen is a teacher, and doesn’t earn enough for a place of her own. Anthony writes songs, and is just waiting for the day when someone will pay him for them. Until then, all three are happy at home. It doesn’t cost them anything, and surely their parents like having a full house?

When a crisis occurs, Dee decides things have to change for the whole family…whether they like it or not.
