Thursday Around Dinner Time…
Once a month, I ponder something to do with living with Parkinson’s and the impact of chronic illness. Be prepared for the frequent sweary bits.
— the internet’s only Parkinson’s rom-com.
After 25 years away Emma returns to her home town.
A place she swore she’d never set foot in again…except it happens to be where the love of her life lives.
Now she must navigate moving two small children the length of the country, find a place to live, reconnect with old friends, make new ones, adapt to the awful weather, find a way to feed herself and discover whether she and her love are meant to be.
Oh, Emma also discovers she has Parkinson’s.
