||'The Trouble With Ally' is a
humorous modern women's fiction novel - but what makes it different is that the
heroine, for once, is not in her twenties or thirties but a fifty year old. It
deals with an ordinary working woman's life and problems in a light-hearted
way. Ally's problems at the start of the book include a sick cat, a car that
keeps breaking down, a cantankerous elderly mother, a difficult boss and the
fact that she's on her own with her two daughters. She tells a little white lie
to try to get herself out of difficulties and finds that one lie leads to
another, until eventually no-one believes her when she's telling the truth . .
. or is she telling the truth?!
