  • A warm and witty journey of self-discovery. Prior proves that it’s never too late to become the person you were meant to be.

    Wendy Wax, bestselling author of MY EX-BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING
  • A warm-hearted and life-affirming tale about ageing, human kindness, old-fashioned values and protecting our planet.

  • A touching, uplifting tale.

    Jo Wiley, Radio 2 Book Club
  • Love is not simple; it is the most complex of all the experiences we encounter. Caring for an orphaned penguin liberates the love Veronica had withheld for decades. At the age of eighty-six, the world is all at once at her feet. I commend this novel as a work of art, written in a prose so fluent that it all but reads itself to you. And the creation of the character of Veronica, just by itself, deserves high praise.
