Now on her own, Rose spends hours reflecting about her youth and years gone by. She would love to get out of the house more, have more fun and meet more people. Lacking confidence through her failing vision, Rose now relies too heavily on her daughters who are only too keen to help.

On meeting Bill, during one of her rare solo shopping trips, she is immediately comfortable in his presence and uncharacteristically responds to this new friendship. She surprises her family with her new found element of freedom as a spark of laughter and purpose comes flooding back into her routine.

Allyson R. Abbott, British romance author, always finds a way of encouraging the reader to become attached to her characters. Using wit, humour and real life situations the protagonists could be your friend or neighbour.
