A heartwarming tale of a young woman with learning difficulties and her quest to find love
"A wonderful, poignant and witty story about the life, loves and struggles of a young woman with learning difficulties." Jill Fraser, Director and Founder of Kissing It Better Healthcare Charity
"Local author's debut novel manages to combine a sensitive subject with Black Country Humour". 'Waterstones Loves', Waterstones, Walsall
Life as the single mum of a learning-disabled daughter in a small town in the West Midlands is tough. To Izzie's alarm, all her daughter, Jaya, 18, wants from life is to get married and have babies. How can Izzie continue to protect Jaya whilst at the same time letting her go? When Jaya mistakenly believes she has found love with a naive young teaching assistant, Izzie has to act. Maybe finding half-Indian Jaya a ‘suitable husband’ via an arranged marriage wouldn't be so crazy.
