Description:
Masha is drowning. Once a spirited, independent woman with a rebellious streak, her life has been forever changed by a tragic event 12 years ago. Unable to let go of her grief, she finds solace in the silent company of the souls of her local Victorian cemetery and at the town's lido, where she seeks refuge underwater - safe from the noise and the pain. But a chance encounter with two extraordinary women - the fabulous and wise Kitty Muriel, a convent girl-turned-magician's wife-turned-seventy-something-roller-disco-fanatic, and the mysterious Sally Red Shoes, a bag lady with a prodigious voice - opens up a new world of possibilities, and the chance to start living again. Until the fateful day when the past comes roaring back.

Reviews
Occasionally there's a book that you read in a couple of days - and every time you have to put it down (for such annoying things as eating/dog walks, stuff like that...) you can't wait to pick it up again. This is one of those books. Loved it. although it's sad and poignant in places, and resonates with my particular circumstances quite a lot. Nevertheless, the characters are vividly drawn and the story is, ultimately, one of hope. Only gripe might be a bit-too-pat ending - in fact, a wholly unlikely ending; but maybe it's a time to suspend disbelief and just go with the feel-good thing!!
