About the book

A Scots family drama about three generations chasing dreams and happiness under a dysfunctional matriarch who isn’t who she appears to be. Least of all when an ageing film star makes an unexpected return…

Kate and her Granny Jean have nothing in common. Jean’s great claim to fame is raising her weans without two pennies to rub together, and Kate’s an aspiring scriptwriter whose anxiety and OCD have her stuck on bad thought after bad thought. But what Jean’s Glaswegian family don’t know is that the woman who likes nothing more than a guid natter dreamed of being a film star and came a hairsbreadth away from making it a reality.

Now in her nineties, Jean’s a force to be reckoned with and a bad mammy to youngest daughter Marie. But after a lifetime of agreeing to her petty whims, Marie takes a stand. As Jean faces her failings as a mammy head-on when the family falls apart, Kate must fight her demons when something scarier than her worst bad thought becomes a reality, or let go of her dream of the silver screen forever.
