Rushing from one crisis to another, Penny Rushmore has a name to live up to, coping with a demanding job and still adapting to a life without her husband Steve. The first set-back comes when she hears that the glamorous young woman Steve took off with is pregnant. According to Penny's daughter, Steve and Jacinta are head over heels about each other. According to Penny's son, Charlotte is also head over heels - about her ageing university lecturer. But is Penny head over heels about her new boyfriend Simon or is she too frantic running between disasters to find out? And is her elderly father still head over heels about his wife or has her advanced dementia driven him over the edge? Funny and fast-paced, this is a candid and entertaining novel about finding some sort of balance in your life while being stuck in the Sandwich Generation - sandwiched between the demands of ageing parents, teenagers, a career and a badly behaved spaniel.
