Neptune's Daughter

(2005)
A novel by

 
 
When Gwen MacIvor is widowed, she surprises everyone by embarking on an entirely new life. She buys a derelict tower by the sea, sets about restoring it, takes a lover and a job, studies astrology and learns to enjoy life - at long last!
Unfortunately, her daughter Eleanor, a successful executive in her 30s, has other plans for her. Eleanor is pregnant and intends to go back to work as soon as her baby is born. She assumes that her mother will bring the baby up - it is not an assumption that Gwen shares and she is aghast at being viewed simply as "good child care".

Genre: General Fiction
