When her 18-year-old twins leave for university, single mum Nadia’s life changes in ways she never expected: her Glasgow flat feels suddenly huge, laundry doesn’t take up half her week, and she no longer has to buy ‘the Big Milk’. After almost two decades of putting everyone herself. And with a budding romance with new boyfriend Jack, She’s never felt more alive.
That is, until her son Alfie drops out of university, and Nadia finds her empty nest is empty no more. With a heartbroken teenager to contend with, Nadia has to ask herself: is it ever possible for a mother to get her own life back? And can Jack and Nadia’s relationship survive having a sulky teenager around?
Firstly a big thank you to Sabah for my copy to review and having me on the tour.
I am a huge fan of fionas books ,you are guaranteed a bit of fun escapism.
She writes with great wit , warmth and knowledge of being a mum.
Funny and real im sure many parents can relate to Nadias situation.
Whizzed through and was rooting for Nadia and Jack. I really enjoyed reading his narrative too , enabling me to get a mans perspective…not always easy!
Really enjoyed and do check out the other blogs taking part.
