Mrs.Vole has 'one son, two daughters, three cats, four dogs, and no husband'. She works terribly hard, and her children worry about her; she is always tired. What she needs, they decide, is a boyfriend - though quite why if she is tired all the time one wonders! They find all manner of men for her, but there is always a problem - until she finds one for herself. Funny and witty.
