Lynne Truss observes the inhabitants Meridian Cliffs, a small wind-battered town on the south coast of England.
Mrs Manville lives in a Tudor revival home called the Grange. Built on a double plot, it's by far the largest house in Meridian Cliffs. Now approaching 80, Mrs Manville has decided it's time to downsize. Her son Mark, with an eye on his inheritance, has his own ideas about what she should do but Mrs Manville clings fiercely to her independence, and chooses instead to seek the services of kind, reliable Mr Jolyon.
