Recently widowed Mary feels something needs to change, but she is not sure what ? 




She decides to sell her home in Sydney and move to a retirement village in sunny Queensland. Mary has always enjoyed her own company and struggles with the many personalities she encounters in the village. 


There are two things Mary won’t tolerate. Idiots, and nasty women. Unfortunately for her, the village is full of them. 


Has Mary made a mistake, or will she find something wonderful?




"I may be older, but I'm not dead yet!' This sums up the delightful tale of recently widowed, Mary. In her unique style, the author has delivered a poignantly sweet story full of loss, betrayal and the challenges of ageing in Australia, but laced with humour, homegrown Aussie slang, and a big splash of optimism. The prose is light and entertaining, switching from Mary's early life to the current timeline and throwing in some twists and surprises along the way. Perfect for enjoying with a cuppa and a Tim Tam Slam!" - Amazon Review
