Ice Cream

by Helen Dunmore

In this collection of short stories the main characters are completely different, but you will identify with all of them from the school dinner-lady, to the writer who meets a ghostly Charlotte Bronte, to the older daughter playing nurse to step brothers and sisters. You will experience their feelings, their worries, their problems. And there's a twist in every 'tail'!

The fuss Valerie Kenward made about having him to stay, you'd think the Pope was coming for a fortnight. I never liked her. Always holding up the queue saying she's on a diet and then taking the biggest bun.
