She had to get away from her stifling life in the city, her over-bearing mother and her self-centred pompous ex! Dragging her obstreperous teenage daughter to a new 'peaceful' life in the country, Verity hoped and prayed she was shaking off the past. For a while it was good - but then her past followed her down the M5! With hilarious,emotional and tender moments, could she land on happy feet? More
She was a single mother, a harassed ex-wife, a put-upon daughter, best friend and sister - and she had to escape!
Leaving the city, her only friend and a mind-numbingly dull job, Verity set off for fresh horizons deep in the Cornish countryside. Life in the city had been driving her mad and a complete change was what she desperately needed. But can you leave your past behind?
Cornwall breathed new life into Verity and her daughter, Constance. Chickens, ducks and alpacas were among her new co-habitees and with eccentric new friends and neighbours she settled into a peaceful, relaxing existence.
But before long, her past came rolling down the M5! A hilarious wild goose chase, a body in the woods, everyone she knew (and some she'd rather not know) descended on her new-found quietude.
How would she cope? How would everyone else cope?
Tripping over moments of farce, lunacy, emotion and tenderness, could Verity really find the peace she was after and land on happy feet?
