A funny, fresh new heroine for lovers of one-liners, Saturday-afternoon films and sour-cream-and-onion flavour crisps... Cork school teacher Maeve is stuck in a rut. When she's not trying to keep six-year-olds from killing each other, her colleagues are boring her with tales of domestic bliss and the finer points of football. The only thing getting Maeve's love and attention is her garden. All washed up at the age of 34? Not our Maeve. Taking a giant leap of faith, she leaves her yellow wellies behind and heads across the pond to Canada. Under the clear blue skies of Vancouver, she realises what it's like to live a little on the wild side. There's the edible Wes, with his blond hair and toothpaste smile, and there's someone else....
