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.
