I read Flying Lessons and loved it so I thought I'd try Tilly.To be honest it was a bit of a shock, what with all the boobs and kissing. Tilly seemed very naive and far too understanding of her faithless husband's betrayal, there were no recriminations or tearing out of hair. I persevered, muttering to myself. I suppose I began to get into it about half-way through, but still wanted the characters to be a bit nastier. People aren't really that nice, are they? It wasn't until I'd nearly got to th [...]
This is a fun, entertaining read! Tilly Lake experiences a whirlwind life change in such a short amount of time and it's instantly impossible to not love her. She epitomizes women of her generation whom have placed themselves second throughout an entire marriage in order to prioritize the role of "wife." When that role abruptly ends for Tilly, she moves on. And, my, how she moves on! If "conservative" is a term you relate to yourself, Tilly will undoubtedly shock you. If you have more of an open [...]
First let me say, the writing is superb and I thought the plot was incredibly original and intriguing. So many areas of the book had me laughing out loud and saying, "What the?" I also really thought that Tilly was going to turn into a full blown switch hitter - she may yet I suppose. All in all, this was a fun and fresh story that I enjoyed very much. Why only three stars, you ask? Allow me to explain.Where the story grabbed me was with the characters. I love them. They are so fresh and unexpec [...]
There is something very endearing about this book. It's not exactly true to life, the people in it are far too open and kind to each other, but in this case I don't think that matters.I have to warn you, it is slightly erotic but in a very mild way. There are no rampant bed scenes, more a slight whisper of suggestion, but there is a fixation on the female chest area which you could compare to looking at an oil painting of a few hundred years ago.Tilly, the main character, is at work when she lea [...]

Their road trip is full of wonderful, bizarre encounters, a lot of kissing and a lot of laughs.Tilly is naïve, generous and warm, with a healthy and open attitude to trying new experiences. Her developing relationship with the much younger Johnny is a delight, and her acceptance of her husband’s lo [...]
The book is well written and well edited and the premise is interesting. Tilly's husband dies in not-so-favorable circumstances and that leads her to reach for a new life and new experiences. While I understood the premise, I didn't really understand the trip to the end of the book. The situations were more fantasy than fiction; I've never met anyone close to the women in this book - all at the same time. The road trip seemed a bit long and the repetitive 'cute' byplay between characters should [...]
A fun and enjoyable read with extremely likeable characters. They are all a little too kind and generous to be true which gives it a dream like quality. Tilly herself is slightly implausible for someone of her age, but it doesn't really matter. She's great and you learn to love her innocence and generosity Unfortunately for me, much of the trip was a bit 'samey' and repetitive and there wasn't really enough tension to keep me hooked, so I found it a bit hard to get to the end. I did though, and [...]
