Rose wants a baby, but she’s too old. Adam’s musical career is on the line. Newly widowed Evie wonders if it’s time to move on. Twelve-year-old Lizzie has to deal with her father’s heart attack. Mariella can’t stop worrying. Archie is hoping to make a success of his third marriage. And Sammy has to cope with a bad case of indigestion. Each of the principal characters in this collection has a problem or predicament to which there isn’t always an easy solution. If there is a solution…

Disquieting, humorous and thought-provoking, these character-driven stories show the often extraordinary and unexpected ways in which their protagonists deal with the fragile moments in their lives. Readers who enjoy sympathetic and insightful short stories about human nature, as well as entertaining slices of daily life, will enjoy this book.
