Description
El mundo ha cambiado alrededor de la bibliotecaria Millicent Carmichael, también conocida como Missy, de setenta y nueve años. Aunque se apresuró a admitir que a menudo encontraba sus roles de ama de casa y madre menos que satisfactorios, Missy una vez llevó una vida bulliciosa impulsada por dos hijos, un esposo consumado y célebre, y un título de Clásicos de Cambridge. Ahora que su esposo se ha ido, su hija se ha distanciado después de una discusión devastadora y su hijo se ha mudado a la Australia natal de su esposa, llevándose al amado único nieto de Missy a medio mundo de distancia. Se pasa los días bebiendo jerez, evitando a la gente y dando vueltas en su casa demasiado grande y poco decorada esperando... ¿qué exactamente? Lo último que Missy espera es que dos perfectos extraños y un perro enérgico llamado Bob rompan su exterior espinoso y le muestren cuánto amor todavía tiene para dar. En poco tiempo, Missy se encuentra en el abrazo discordante de una comunidad ecléctica que simplemente no aceptará un no por respuesta, incluido un chucho travieso prestado cuyo amor incondicional le da a Missy una razón para volver a entrar en el mundo. huella de la pata a la vez.
Description
The world has changed around seventy-nine-year-old librarian Millicent Carmichael, aka Missy. Though quick to admit that she often found her roles as a housewife and mother less than satisfying, Missy once led a bustling life driven by two children, an accomplished and celebrated husband, and a Classics degree from Cambridge. Now her husband is gone, her daughter is estranged after a shattering argument, and her son has moved to his wife's native Australia, taking Missy's beloved only grandchild half-a-world away. She spends her days sipping sherry, avoiding people, and rattling around in her oversized, under-decorated house waiting for...what exactly? The last thing Missy expects is for two perfect strangers and one spirited dog named Bob to break through her prickly exterior and show her just how much love she still has to give. In short order, Missy finds herself in the jarring embrace of an eclectic community that simply won't take no for an answer--including a rambunctious mutt-on-loan whose unconditional love gives Missy a reason to re-enter the world one muddy paw print at a time.
