Bliss (Elizabeth) Henderson has reached the end of a very colourful life that her three stepchildren know very little about. As she drifts in and out of consciousness she revisits the past, chatting to the reader, while her children rally and fuss around her. They see a frail sometimes confused old woman but we see her still vibrant mind and wicked sense of humour.
I loved the way her life unfolds through her dialogue and through glimpses into her children’s lives. It is a wonderful book about love, family and the secrets we choose to keep.
