Mimi and her husband, Ralph, have left social climbing, pushy parenting, and their marital problems behind them in London in favor of perfect, bucolic tranquility. Or so they thought. What should be rural heaven turns out to be just as tricky to navigate as Notting Hill, even with Mimi's new best friend Rose -- Dorset's answer to Martha Stewart -- by her side.
While Honeyborne is thankfully free of prestigious preschools with waiting lists that begin in utero, it has its own fierce brand of competition. Without a helipad for trophy guests, an organic farm shop, and a bottom that looks good in jodhpurs, Mimi is at a distinct disadvantage. And that's just the start of her problems. Mimi also has a secret. Can she keep it?
With a gimlet eye for telling details and human foibles, Rachel Johnson has crafted a novel that is fresh, hilarious, and irresistibly funny -- a brilliant slice of social satire with surprising depth and heart.
