Description:
Published outside the British Isles
Lizzie is concerned about her newly divorcée mother - thirty-one years old, with three young children and a Labrador in a hostile village in the English countryside. It isn't that having a husband is good, but in 1970s rural Leicestershire, not having one is bad. The women in the village think Lizzie's mother is after their husbands while no one will let the children into the Brownies. And so Lizzie and her sister embark on a misguided campaign to find a new 'Man at the Helm'.

This funny, poignant and often sad tale feels autobiographical making it funnier, more poignant and sadder. It is a tale of the chaos of family life, written so that you can relate to many of the incidents described and are very glad indeed that others have never happened to you!
