Eighty-six-year-old Rosemary Peterson swims in the lido (an outdoor pool) in Brixton, London, daily. It's where she fell in love, and where she feels ageless. When housing developers threaten to close the pool, Kate Matthews—a lonely young journalist—takes on the story for the local paper. A lovely intergenerational friendship blossoms as the two women join forces in fighting for their community. This feel-good novel is a poignant celebration of love in all its many forms.
