The Book of Polly by Kathy Hepinstall

Polly Havens is a mother for the third time late in life and is a fish out of water in the Texas suburb where she lives with her daughter Willow who is now ten years old. The pair have their own issues and complications to deal with as well as each other.  Willow is constantly worried that her mother does not have long to live and when she has a reason to fear the worst they have to pull together as well as any quirky family can.

This book is character filled with a good dose of acerbic wit and dubious wisdom.

It is a satisfying read and a great story with characters who are well written and likable even in their moments of crazy.
