A delicious, funny, heartwarming new novel from an author whose novels are bestsellers in Scotland and who has a growing army of fans in the rest of the world.

When James McElroy saw the ad for a lodger with 'Bibi Sanders' in a smart Edinburgh street, he pictured a glamorous young landlady with whom he would form a meaningful and deep relationship. But Bibi's in her seventies. She's led a full life, including marriage to the domineering and difficult Callum, now deceased, and raised six children.She's not sure what to make of James and suspects - rightly - a troubling secret in his past. When Bibi sets out to re-visit the past for the final time via a tour of Britain in her rather unexpected Volvo sports car, James decides to go with her. It's a journey full of surprised and revelations which will change them both - and, in Isla Dewar's inimitable way, entertain and enlighten every reader.
