Mrs Caldicot's Knickerbocker Glory

(The second book in the Mrs Caldicot series)
A novel by

The second book in the Mrs Caldicot series.
'Sequels have a tendency to fall flat - not so in this sequel to Mrs Caldicot's Cabbage War. It's a humorous tale but has a deeper significance as the oldies battle with authority, adversity, greed and spite with hope in their hearts. It's sure to go down well with older readers. Smartly written, a comedy that sets you thinking, and uplifting too.' - Chester Chronicle
'A light hearted comedic novel with a serious message. A sequel to Mrs Caldicot's Cabbage War.' - WI Home and Country
The story of Mrs Caldicot - the woman who started a nursing home revolution. This is the sequel to Mrs Caldicot's Cabbage war. In this book Mrs Caldicot starts her own nursing home and has to deal with all sorts of lunatics - most of them clipboard carrying bureaucrats (and one loony psychiatrist).
`On the first occasion I picked up this book I laughed out loud and felt quite uplifted.' - Mrs O.J., Hampshire
