The tale of Mrs Whitaker, who finds the Holy Grail in a charity shop. Along the way she meets her dear friend Mrs Greenberg for macaroons, and becomes the focal point of Sir Galaad's most important quest.

It's a delightfully quirky, funny, and sweet story, mixing the gentle normality of Mrs Whitaker's chats with her best friend, discussing grandchildren over home-made macaroons, with the very lightly touched upon everyday loneliness of bereavement, and a visit from a handsome young man who says he's called Galaad. He comes asking for the Grail, and ends up helping out with the gardening and heavy lifting around the house.
