So when, unexpectedly, life propels her back to being the glamorous Barb, she finally has the chance to find herself once more... Equal parts moving and hilarious, More Than a Feeling delightfully questions whether we want to 'have it all' or just be happy in our own skin. Perfect for fans of Holly Bourne and Lucy Vine.
