We will be launching a NEW online catalogue on April 6th. To accommodate this and other changes, the Library will be closed from March 30th to April 5th. During the closure, this website will not be available and members will not be able to place holds or renew items. Your saved lists and shelf information will be available in the new catalogue. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
Until events run wildly out of hand, Charleen Forrest manages to cope with the uncertainties of a failed marriage, trying to live her own life and raise a son on her frugal income. She is not unaware of the hazards: "family, banktellers, ex-husband, landladies, bus drivers... men on the make who want her to lie back and accept (this is what you need, baby), friends who feel sorry for her." Her resourcefulness is a delight; her uncanny observations and surprising irony reveal a witty, wry edge that is apt to make you laugh out loud.
