Eliza gives up her messy lifestyle to try and bring some order and maturity to her life. Martha’s husband leaves her and she embarks on “just having fun”. The two sisters are swapping ways of life and finding out the realities of the other.
I think the book is more about Martha than Eliza, and it’s lovely to see her blossom from a quiet little mouse into a kick-ass single mother. Eliza, you feel, just needs to be taught a lesson. And I don’t know if it’s just me who feels that Jack really is just too good to be true.
It was easy to read, quite open and gets across emotions very well. I liked it, but I found it a little bit unbelievable. A great fairy-story though.
