When I started reading this novel, I wasn't sure if I liked it or not. It's the story of Tilly who comes home to a small country town to care for her mother, Molly. There's a secret to unfold and as the story progresses, the towns people get nastier and nastier until it reaches the point where I was hoping that Tilly got some revenge on them. When it finally happens its very funny. In the end, I really enjoyed the novel.
