Mother cannot take any more – so she takes herself off on a madcap jaunt to Marrakesh. Father, it seems, is incapable of running a home, so it is left to seventeen-year-old Viola to take charge of the family. It is certainly no easy task to look after a grubby little brother or a younger sister who constantly asks about sex. To add to the chaos, Father invites the alluring Gloria to come and ‘keep house’ for the family. The sleepy village of Shepherd’s Delight has never seen anything quite like Gloria, and Viola begins to feel that life is getting just a little out of hand? This amusing tale of an unorthodox situation is also a thoughtful and perceptive account of a young woman’s coming of age.

Eric Malpass worked in a bank after leaving school, but his firm ambition was to become a novelist and he wrote in his spare time for many years. His first book, ‘Morning’s at Seven’, was published to wide acclaim. With an intuitive eye for the quirkiness of family life, his novels are full of wry comments and perceptive observations. This exquisite sense of detail has led to the filming of three of his books. His most engaging character is Gaylord Pentecost – a charming seven-year-old who observes the strange adult world with utter incredulity. Eric Malpass also wrote biographical novels, carefully researched and highly evocative of the period. Amongst these is ‘Of Human Frailty’, the moving story of Thomas Cramner. With his amusing and lovingly drawn details of life in rural England, Malpass’ books typify a certain whimsical Englishness – a fact which undoubtedly contributes to his popularity in Europe. Married with a family, Eric Malpass lived in Long Eaton, near Nottingham, until his death in 1996.
