Poppy Carew, smarting and in shock because her live-in lover has left her for a richer woman, is called to the bedside of her dying father, a wonderful, loveable eccentric who dies laughing. He asks as his last request that he be buried in style by an undertaker who specialises in fun funerals. He also astonishes Poppy by leaving her a large sum of money.

As news of her good fortune spreads, other friends of friends, acquaintances of her dead father (who appears to have made his fortune by being nice to old ladies) and, not least, her ex-lover emerge. Suddenly there are too many choices for Poppy Carew. Download and start listening now!

    " I generally like Mary Wesley's books - they're my snuggly, comfort reads. I think is probably my least favourite - so many of the characters were intensely irritating rather than the endearingly quirky that Wesley usually evokes. Disappointing. "

    " Mary Wesley's stories are populated by quirky personalities. Some you'll like and some you won't, but all of them you'll believe. I read Poppy Carew in a weekend maybe fifteen years ago and it's still a favorite of mine. Why? Because it made me laugh. "

    " Mary Wesley is most certainly not all sweetness and light. That's what makes her wonderful "

    " I'm stuck on Mary Wesley at the moment. Easy read but there are some worrying views about relationships between men and women. "
