Mother Nature

Description

Flora’s mother was the famous Anita Montrose, much sought-after writer of witty articles in magazines and star of radio and television.

 

Some people envied Flora for being the daughter of such a celebrity, but she grew up knowing that her mother regarded her as an encumbrance, best sent away to school and palmed off on to friends in the holidays. So she determined that if she ever married, she would always put her family first, never let a career interfere with it.

 

Her college friends mocked such old-fashioned ideas, but she did exactly as she had said and, twenty years on, had created a secure and happy home, loved her husband and her son and daughter, her house and her beautiful garden. It had all worked out for the best. Or had it?

 

In Mother Nature, Margaret Bacon shows how the best-laid plans can go awry, and salvation can come in unexpected ways.
