Description

‘A tender, unsentimental exploration of the bittersweet joys of lifelong companionship’ Daily MailEven the longest marriages have their secrets . . . Jack and Bet have been married for seventy years. Happily so, for the most part. Now, all they want is to enjoy the time they have left together in their small flat. But their son Tommy has other ideas: he thinks they should move out and optfor round-the-clock care in a very different kind of home. When a young Romanian woman, Marinela, enters their lives, Bet thinks she might have found a solution to all of their problems; one that could change Marinela’s life for the better. But doing so would mean confronting a long-buried secret Bet has kept hidden from everyone, even Jack, for decades.An irresistibly moving story about love and loss, Jack & Bet is at once a story of unlikely friendship and a tender look at a lifelong struggle to find a place to call home.’Full of beauty, pain and joy, I loved Jack & Bet’ – Laura Barnett, author of The Versions of Us
