This is a tale of three women and the tie that binds them: the irritating tie that rubs; the fragile tie that's knotted, broken and knotted again; the lasting tie that triumphs over age and death ... the tie between mothers and daughters. Old Jess, her exasperated daughter and the laughing young mother she remembers struggle for independence in a radiant play about continuity of caring. Published with A Little Something for the Ducks.
"A small gem featuring three members of a family... in a situation most families face at some point in their lives..." County Live, Ontario, Canada
