Tessa Sanders is a modern-day Calamity Jane. After ten miserable years married to horrid Rupert, Tessa finally decides to leave him. Her exit is made possible following a chance meeting with Major Adam Parker-Hurst, the golf club captain. The major offers her and her five-year-old twin sons, Sam and Freddy, a place to stay at his magnificent country house, Manorbier Estate. Thinking that marriage is eventually on the cards, Tess is miffed to find out that she’s not the only lodger at the house. Simon, a corporal in the local Territorial Army is also a guest, or so it seems; the relationship between the senior officer and his subordinate appears to be a bit too friendly for her liking! To make matters worse, Rupert becomes more of a burden now she’s left him than he ever was when they were together! Put into the pot, her dithery mother and Tess is slowly being torn apart with everything that’s going on! And all this is performed in front of the boys who provided such an innocent background to the entire saga it makes her cry! But when she’d finally managed to get herself on an even keel, even the rivers of tears she’d shed over the boys didn’t compare to what happened in the end. It was the saddest part of her entire life; it was tragic. The reader is taken on a hilarious and very witty roller-coaster ride that exudes a calamity of heartache, agonising sorrow, stupidity, naivety, sleaze, chance, and unbelievable romance; the incredible journey seasoned with large servings of humiliation and disappointment along the way.
