Brown Owls Guide to Life
Author: Kate Harrison
Shy, sweet-natured Lucy Collins is used to being pushed around. For the first eighteen years of her life, her widowed mother Judith ruled the roost. Now Lucys husband, her seven-year-old daughter and even Buster the cat boss her about. But her mothers premature death leaves Lucy an orphan at the age of thirty-five. Shes devastated...but shes also free. After a lifetime of being a disappointment to everyone, is it finally time Lucy grew up?As she clears out her mothers rambling house, Lucy discovers a trunk full of memories...her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother were all Brown Owls: capable, no-nonsense matriarchs who were the leading lights of the Girl Guide movement. They spent their spare time preparing the next generation for their roles as wives and mothers with a mixture of campfire songs, sew-on badges and reef knots. But could the old values and frontier spirit now hold the key to help Lucy make the changes she needs in her life?
