Penny Rushmore is a typical baby boomer, sandwiched between her warring teenagers and an increasingly dotty mother, whilst running her own business and worrying about a wayward husband, hot flushes and an expanding waistline.
Her great-grandmother, a passionate suffragette and temperance advocate, was equally torn between demanding daughters and a dependent mother showing early signs of dementia. When Penny discovers her great-grandmother's letters, she is almost at the end of her tether. Will the words of another woman from another time help Penny deal with having to split her time amongst so many others?
