Poppy Sinclair is approaching fifty, and mostly loves her life; teaching young children, living in her Auckland home, intimately connected to family and friends. After a fairytale romance with Kate ends tragically, she reshapes her life to living alone. Still, you can't shut out love, and with the arrival of a surprise visitor, anything can happen. An evocative look like at life and love, Poppy's Progress is a delightful story of a woman coming to terms with loss and discovering that you can be surprised, even by those you are closest to.

Exquisite characterisation … Poppy's Progress is a thoroughly enjoyable reassurance that even the most shy and prickly individuals can find love, laughter and happiness in life.Susana Carryer, New Zealand Herald
I heartily recommend this book to readers, lesbian and straight, who want an enjoyable read that takes them into situations that may be new to them. And especially to readers who are women moving beyond middle age. Both books are better read together. [Poppy's Return]Me, you, and books
