Description

From the master of literary domestic drama, a page-turning novel that dissects the complexities of female friendship and the choices that define women's lives. It is Eleanor who starts the Friday night get-togethers. From her window she sees two young women, with small children, separate, struggling, and plainly lonely--and decides to ask them in. What began as a lark soon becomes a ritual, and the circle widens to include six very different women. They range in age from Jules, who is twenty-two and wants to be a DJ, to Eleanor herself, a retired professional who walks with a stick. They include one wife, three mothers, three singles, and five working women. All of them, variously, value Friday nights. Until one of them meets a man--an enigmatic, significant man--and the whole dynamic changes. The bonds that have been so closely forged are tested--and some of them break. With wit and warmth, Joanna Trollope explores the complexities, the sabotages, and the shifting currents of modern female friendship.

Joanna Trollope's warm, insightful novel stars Eleanor, who invites two young mothers into her home from off the street, and slowly begins to connect with them and their friends. But when one of them meets a man, new questions are posed: can female friendships withstand the jealousies and intricacies of love? With wit and warmth Joanna Trollope opens a window onto six very different women's lives, their passions and their sorrows, and explores with insight and humanity the shifting currents of friendship. "Trollope's memorable characters do more than just represent varying female predicaments: they develop as rich individuals who come to triumph over their pasts...Trollope masterfully shows how work and romance can tip the scales in female friendships."—Publishers Weekly Joanna Trollope, the nationally bestselling author of seventeen other books, including Second Honeymoon, Brother & Sister, Marrying the Mistress, and The Rector's Wife, lives in Gloucestershire, England.
