From the Back Cover
The Foreign Land of the Very Wealthy – otherwise known as Manhattan’s Upper East Side – has its own rigid code of behaviour. It’s a code strictly adhered to by the Wilder-Bingham family. This is Glenn Wilder-Bingham’s kingdom. A beautifully displayed impeccably edited fortress of restraint.
So when Rosie Kitto, an eccentric thirty-eight-year-old primary school teacher from England, bounces into their lives with a secret sorrow and a heart as big as the city, nobody realises that she hasn’t read the rule book. For the Wilder-Bingham family, whose lives begin to unravel thread by thread, the consequences are explosive. Because after a lifetime of saying no, what happens when everyone starts saying . . . yes?
Kelly O finished this book (November 2016). “I must admit that it wasn’t until I was about a quarter of the way into this book that I began to enjoy it. I – stupidly – considered giving up! But Dawn French has a way of holding your attention and her characters felt real. I loved the overall premise too – about saying yes to life. It’s a truly heartwarming read but without the layered-on sentimentality. I’m so glad I finally picked it up!”
