Once upon a time, Jacks Morgan had dreams.
She would have a career and travel the world. She would own a house on the beach, and spend long nights with her boyfriend strolling under the stars.
But life had other ideas. First Martha came along, then Jonty. Then her mother moved in, and now their little terrace is bursting at the seams.
Jacks gave up on her dreams to look after her family. If only, just for once, her family would look after her…
Not having read any of Amanda’s books before I wasn’t sure what to expect. So in this story we meet Jacks who has two kids called Martha and Jonty and a husband called Pete. Not only does she run the house she also cares for her mother who has dementia. The story is told from the past and present and you get a bigger picture of what life was like for Jacks when she was younger. Be ready for lots of surprises that you would never have guessed in this emotional but beautifully told story. I sure am looking forward to reading more of Amanda’s books.
