The Old Girls' Network: The top 10 bestselling funny, feel-good read from USA Today bestseller Judy Leigh Kindle Edition
The USA Today and Top 10 bestseller
It's never too late to change…
After a health scare, 77 year-old spinster Barbara goes to convalesce in the sleepy picture-perfect English country village of Winsley Green with her sister Pauline. The sisters are chalk and cheese - Barbara, outspoken and aloof and Pauline, good natured and homely – so it’s not long before the tension starts to rise.
When Pauline accidentally knocks down a vagrant called Bisto Mulligan, the ladies find themselves with another houseguest. As he recovers, it becomes apparent that Bisto is not who he first seemed and, as the sisters get to know the kind and courageous man he really is, it’s clear Bisto could change both of their lives.
As the spring turns to summer, and the English countryside comes to life, can the three friends make the changes they need to, to embrace fresh starts, new loves, new journeys and new horizons. Or do old habits die too hard?
Funny, joyful and with a spring in its step that reminds you to live every day like it’s your last. Judy Leigh has once again written the perfect feel-good novel for all fans of Jennifer Bohnet, Rebecca Raisin and Cathy Hopkins.

With a cast of quirky characters and some dry and witty lines, this is a book to cheer you up and can truly be described as heart-warming. The yoga session has to be one of the high spots for me! It is the sort of book which offers you both humour and pathos
and I would like to think that there could be return trips to visit Pauline, Barbara, Bisto et al.
In short: As Len would say: Laughter. Tears. Perfect.
When Pauline accidentally knocks down a man outside the pub who appears to have fallen on hard times, her kind, caring nature forces her to take Bisto under her wing. As time goes by the three form quite the unlikely friendship and outspoken, crotchety Barbara finds a new lease of life.
This is a highly amusing book, full of funny moments and lovable characters who will stay in your heart for a long time. I enjoyed it from the first page to the last and will continue to look for books full of the older generation and their hilarious, carefree antics.
I found her vicious tongue quite upsetting. I have read about 45% of the book and wont be continuing
