Summary

'You can have it all’, they said. ‘Happy children, happy marriage, great career - no problem,’ they said....

Mother-of-one Saoirse is just about holding it all together - combining part-time work with the school run, while her husband, David, gets to focus on his career. But when David loses his job, everything has to change.

With no hesitation, Saoirse suggests she takes on the role of main breadwinner. After all, how hard can it be? And when a new client offers her a life-changing sum of money, Saoirse can look the other over-achieving Woodvale school-run mums in the eye with pride.

But there’s a problem with keeping too many balls in the air - eventually one is bound to drop. And when that happens - well, who knows what the consequences could be....

Laugh-out-loud funny, achingly relatable, but with a heart of gold and warmth running through every minute. This is the perfect listen for anyone who has way too many balls in the air! The novel may or may not have been inspired by real life....

Loved it

Realised when I was well into the book that it was a follow on book. So remembered the characters and the narrator. Enjoyed it very much. Humour and serious. It makes for great listening. Recommend
