What to expect

In this addictive short story collection, twenty-four very different women reach a pivotal moment in their lives.

A widow is liberated by a new job, but keeps it secret from her family. A date in suburbia has dramatic results. A seamstress takes revenge on an unsuspecting customer, while in France, a mother is promised ‘fantastic news’ – and lets her imagination run away with her.

With each story, Jenny Eclair introduces a fascinating new character. And behind each woman lies a gripping tale – of betrayal, of love, of hope and defiance.

Funny, heart-breaking, inspiring – and packed with wicked one liners – this wonderful collection shows Jenny Eclair’s exceptional talent for observation at its very best. Based on Jenny Eclair’s Radio 4 series, Little Lifetimes.
