A warm, funny and touching novel about love and family, forgiveness and coming to terms with the past. Ruby Tuesday Moon grew up hating everything about her life. It wasn't just her daft name and hand-me-down clothes; she hated being the daughter of Normanford's only single parent, failed nightclub singer and resident goodtime girl, Sadie Moon who regularly turned up at parents evening dressed like Shirley Bassey. As soon as possible, Ruby bought a one-way ticket to London, changed her name and escaped for ever - or so she thought. But nearly twenty years on, fate has conspired to send Roo Hennessey, now a successful management consultant, back to Normanford. Back to the friends and family she once knew too well, and the boy who broke her heart. And back to the infamous Sadie, now in her 50s and still acting like a teenager. But as Roo discovers, there are two sides to every story. Perhaps the past is not exactly as she remembers it ...She spent a lot of time playing with Ollie, trying to make up for letting him down and losing his father so carelessly. Strangely, he ... Roo kept her eyes fixed on the screen, where yet another person was falling face first into their birthday cake.
