About the book
Anne Marie’s dad, a Glaswegian painter and decorator, has always been game for a laugh. So when he first takes up meditation at the Buddhist Center, no one takes him seriously. But as Jimmy becomes more involved in a search for the spiritual, his beliefs start to come into conflict with the needs of his wife, Liz. Cracks appear in their apparently happy family life, and the ensuing events change the lives of each family member.
Reviewed by Ten Four Books Reading Group:
Like the Scottish dialect, . in “yar heed”, added authenticity. Characters portrayed were ‘real people’. Easy read. Would the book work elsewhere in the country ie Dorset setting? We thought Jimmy’s character was integral to the plot working.
