"The windows rattle. The roof leaks. Every surface cries out to be stripped, painted, or polished. But for writer Lisa Trumperton, the dilapidated manor house that once belonged to her great-grandfather is far more than the sum of its battered parts. It's the chance for a new start on her own terms. The fact that it's in the Melbourne countryside of her Australian homeland, far from the deceitful ex-husband she just left behind in New York... well, that's a bonus. Lisa sets to work refurbishing Trumperton Manor, assisted by her son, his friends, and a 'Gray Army' of retired handymen. But it's not just her ancestral home that's being transformed... The house is pushing Lisa beyond her old limits, daring her to embrace something bigger, braver, and more rewarding than she ever dreamed"--Back cover.

A good fairly light read with some depth on more serious topics of eating disorders and breast cancer and gay marriages.
