Life begins at fifty… Well, it certainly does for Hope, though not at all as she had planned . She reluctantly hits her half-century on New Year’s Day and within weeks her career, her marriage and her self-esteem are in free-fall. But Hope has guts – and a sense of humour. By the end of her annus horribilis she has acquired a taste for designer underwear, climbing mountains – and the memory of one perfect night in Paris. A funny, wise and touching look at all the issues closest to our hearts. The novel grown-up girls have been waiting for.
