  • Funny, Touching - & Honest!

    What a brilliantly funny read - yet packed with honesty! I just loved everything about it! Peggy Moriarty was widowed young and left with four year old twins to bring up on her own so it's understandable that they became the whole focus of her life. Now they will head to college in less than a year and Peggy's self-neglect has caught up with her when she hears the dreaded words 'You are obese, Mrs Moriarty' from her doctor. But Peggy is in denial; the odd treat can't hurt, surely? But circumstances - and people - conspire against her and before she knows it she finds herself joining a gym for boot camp. Who'd have believed it? Certainly not Peggy! Like a lot of us, I've been overweight (losing the pounds at present) and if you are sick to death of people who infer that you are overweight, then this is the novel for you! It's not a preachy diet and exercise book - far from it! This is a very honest and extremely amusing account of one woman's life as she heads towards being a sole empty-nester dealing with high blood pressure. Peggy isn't an icon for the perfect, super-fit woman; rather she is just herself and it's an absolute pleasure to get to know her throughout this story. With a lightness of hand, Diane Barnes slips the reader into Peggy's life so easily making this is such an enjoyable, entertaining read. I couldn't find fault with it, and it left me with a fabulous feeling of light-hearted happiness. Such a feel good read, beautifully written and so well crafted that it definitely totally earns all five shining stars!

    Thanks for your feedback!
