Product Overview

In this sequel to When the Cat had my Tongue, Diana Fassino recounts her experiences as a hopelessly incompetent 50s housewife, and the unexpected arrival, (the Oops Factor ) of three babies in four years. This Late Starter becomes a prolific writer of short stories for womens magazines world-wide, and at forty, her children grown, she divorces her Swiss husband and moves to London. After a scandalous affair with a handsome young medical student, she leaves home with a backpack and spends a summer in Greece looking after nine drug-crazed ex-racehorses. A ten-day visit to Hawaii turns into three years, after which she runs a marina in the Turks and Caicos Islands. In a night of high drama the marina is burned to the ground, but when shortly afterwards her Knight in Shining Armour arrives in her life, it seems things will at last become less turbulent. Then tragedy and disaster befall her beloveds, and in the last pages of this book we witness the healing and redemptive power of love. Today Diana lives with her American husband Dick, her Knight in Shining Armour, in Sun Valley, Idaho. Praise for When the Cat Had My Tongue : If nostalgia is your thing, I recommend you to read this unique, hilarious insight into the Upstairs Downstairs goings-on in Diana Fassinos riveting, intensely personal account of upper class English country life during WWII.
