‘What a mess, she thought now . . . what a bloody, unholy mess the whole family has got itself into.’ It’s been twenty-five years since Gus and Monica left England to start a new life in Spain, building a vineyard and wine business from the ground up. However, when Gus suffers a stroke and their idyllic Mediterranean life is thrown into upheaval, it’s left to their three grown-up children in London to step in . . .

The Sunday Times number one bestseller Joanna Trollope shares the issues at the heart of a modern family with her trademark wit and warmth, in her new book “Mum & Dad“.
