Now living in Canada, outrageous and gregarious Cockney Eugenia Sztuka, survivor of WW2 and a widow, seems determined to make her childrenas lives miserable. Full of vim and vinegar at nearly seventy, she causes chaos in the lives of her three adult daughters and their families. Wearing clothing far too young for her age, and given to speaking her mind regardless of the consequences, she buzzes through life with complete abandon. Uninvited, she turns up at their homes, usually in some outrageous costume, and after a drink or two regales all and sundry with old Cockney pub songs with hilarious results. However, the large old family home where she lives alone hides a dark secret such that none of the family will visit. A novel that is both humorous and poignant, readers who have experienced or met such a woman will relate to this story.
