After the death of her husband, Henry, Sarah has been left pretty well provided for.

Unfortunately, she has also been left with an exacting mother, Eleanor, who is living downstairs, and an adolescent daughter, Clare, who lives upstairs and longs for independence - but only if mother is there to clear up the mess.
