Althea Farraday can grow a lemon tree from a pip but can't stand up against her bossy family. Sister Juno, two years her junior and "always soignee," is especially lavish with her criticism: of Althea's messy house, her weight and her generally unstylish appearance. Ex-husband Frederick calls from Hong Kong to criticize the way she's chosen to educate their three teens, though he's been absent from their home in Gloucestershire for 12 years. And the incoming head of the restructured primary school where Althea has worked as secretary for many years finds her too old-fashioned for his high-tech vision of the school's new mission. But job loss gives her the same euphoria as divorce, and, despite tight funds, she decides to transform herself from a casual gardener to a garden designer.

I really like Katie Fford, along with Carole Matthews. This one doesn't disappoint.
