This is the brilliant, funny, warm and tender tale of Georgina James and her crazy, mischievous and reckless 10-year-old son, Huw. It's about Huw's desperation to get out of school and climb trees and play with his guns, and Georgie's eagerness to keep him in school and out of tree tops and concentrating on his school-work.

It's about her love for her son as she negotiates the tricky world of single mother dating and work. "It's desperately, tear-jerkingly sad at times, and hilariously funny at others. A really uplifting and joyous, wonderful book. I loved it!"

It's about the love they have for each other - mother and son.

Then, one day, Georgie's world is rocked. Huw's father, David, reappears and demands access to the son he's never met. Georgie is devastated. David broke her heart by leaving her when she was pregnant. She's spent years trying to explain to Huw why he's the only little boy in the class who hasn't got a daddy. Huw doesn't want a father now. He thinks daddies are horrible. But he's got one. How will he cope? How will Georgie cope?

David comes back with his snooty mother Alice in tow…she’s never liked Georgie and Georgie never liked her.

Now there are two sets of mother and sons...

Can Georgie learn to forgive and forget for the sake of her son? And what of the relationship between Georgie and David? Can that be rekindled?

Georgie’s love-life had just been starting to take off when David returned – with Dr Jeremy paying her lots of attention, and a celebrity footballer flirting outrageously with her. The arrival of David confuses everything… her romance with Jeremy looks threatened, especially when she becomes too close to the celebrity footballer, and her job as fashion buyer is threatened by her jealous co-worker Lynne Moss.

Wouldn't it just be easier if she got back with rich, successful David?

Three men, one woman, one child.

But through all the turmoil one thing remains constant - her love for a little blonde boy with freckles, a giggly laugh and filthy fingernails. The love a mother has for her son.
