Fly in the Ointment Paperback

4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Guilt is in the eye of the beholder ... When her cold and indifferent husband vanishes, so does Lois's old life.

Now she is ready to take her chances again. There's only one fly in the ointment: Janie-Gay, ex-partner of the son Lois lost to drugs, and spiteful mother of the small, neglected child she can't get out of her mind. Caring's not something one can lay aside, and Lois is soon tangled in webs of deceit.

Worse, she is on a collision course with a remorseless society that claims to support and protect.

Now, more than ever, she could use the skills of her once frozen heart...

Review by

A believable story involving a character who grabs hold of her problems and takes action! Not all recommended but thought provoking. . At times I had to stop but once I restarted I was hooked. Next morning after reading it I felt ready to tackle some problems too!
