Just once, Ann Devine would like life to be straightforward. But there's just too much drama knocking about for that to happen.

Ann's family is proving a handful at the moment. Her mother moves in after having a fall, her sister Ger is off 'finding herself' in India leaving Ann to look after her teenage, wide a-woke, niece Freya. Her daughter Jennifer is dealing with a love triangle that involves her mother-in-law-to-be. It's all far from simple.

Now Rory, her youngest, has set his sights on a future as a local TD and it's all Ann can do not to box him up and post him off to the backend of wherever is furthest away from his local 'mentor', politician, and all-round chancer Patsy Duggan. Just to save him from himself. Of course, that's not even an option because now the post office is closing down. The locals are up in arms, but what do the powers-that-be care about rural Ireland? Without really meaning to be, Ann finds herself in the thick of things - and things are getting dodgier by the minute.
She only wanted to save the village, but sometimes even saviours need saving from themselves.
