"Isla is the best, the funniest, the cleverest, the most enjoyable writer in Scotland today. . . . you would enrich your life beyond all measure by discovering Isla Dewar." ---Robin Pilcher, "New York"" Times "bestselling author
In this funny and charming novel, Megs is a woman whose ordinary life is about to become absolutely extraordinary. . . .
When Megs became a house cleaner to make ends meet as a single mother of three, she didn't realize that people would be so blinded by the cleansers and mops, they would fail to see her as an actual human being. As "the housekeeper" she's become invisible to them all. Little do these upper-crust clients realize that her life is just as full as theirs, although perhaps a bit less high end.
Megs sings the sultry blues at a club each weekend, begins a secret affair, and drinks her troubles away with her saucy best friend, Lorraine---all while trying to keep her children happy and her head above water. But with help from an eccentric professor whose house she cleans, her life is about to get a shot in the arm. Megs begins to speak her mind, stand up for herself, and live her life in color.
Poignant and incredibly witty, "Giving Up On Ordinary" is a heartwarming story with laughter and surprises on every page. Following in the incredible footsteps of Maeve Binchy and Joanna Trollope, Isla Dewar has established herself as one of the greatest voices in women's fiction today.
