Product description


'Funny and sweet but not overly sentimental, fans of Gail Honeyman will love this warm exploration of love and life' * Bookseller * 'Advancing age may have rendered Anna and George invisible to the world, but so well drawn are they that readers across the generations will be attracted to these golden pals ... Lines lightly laced with pathos combine to pack a punch so powerful they often leave readers reeling' * Sunday Post * 'Under the surface there is a deep well of triumphs, romance, tragedy and loss ...[Anna's verse is] sometimes profound and beautiful, sometimes comic' * Scotsman * 'It rings so true, Dewar evoking the preoccupations of age with a quiet authority... grounded in an awareness that experience and wisdom are qualities that are always hard-won' * Herald *
