Larry is an 87-year-old widow who lives with her daughters Martha and Mary. Martha runs the house and looks after her mother's every need. Her only escape comes with her regular outings to see her friend, Father Jimmy. Mary goes out to work, takes interesting holidays, and is mummy's pet. Add to this that she never lifts a finger in the house, and something has to give. It soon does -- one embarrassing evening when Father Jimmy comes to tea.

Grade Level Equivalent 3-4; adult interest.
Larry is an 87-year-old widow. Old and frail, she remembers her youth as if it were yesterday and longs for her past vigor. Larry lives with her daughters.

Martha, the “good” daughter, waits on her mother’s every whim. Mary has a career, takes exotic vacations and is mother’s favorite, though she never lifts a finger to help. Something has to give. One embarrassing evening, Father Jimmy comes to supper, and pent up feelings emerge. High drama follows, and Larry is nowhere to be found...

Kind of a waste of time reading this . Rather dumb ending. Thought it would be a better story.
