The Second Life of Sally Mottram (Paperback)David Nobbs (author)
- In stock
The wonderfully entertaining new novel from bestselling author of The Fall and Rise of Reggie Perrin.
Long-time Potherthwaite resident Sally Mottram cannot stand the decline of her town. The bookshop is about to close, abandoned buildings line the canal and Potherthwaite's residents seem stuck in a disheartened rut. Something has to be done, but what? And who will do it?
When an unexpected tragedy shatters Sally's life, she bravely takes on the task herself. Supported by a group of locals, including thrice-married Marigold Boyce-Willoughby, who is forever looking for love, and married couple Jill and Arnold Buss, who might both be falling for their new neighbours, Sally embarks on her ambition to bring the town back to life. But can one woman rally a whole community to save itself?
David Nobbs' much-anticipated new novel is a hilarious, heartwarming tale about what keeps our community spirits alive.
