Reviews

Wise, warm, compassionate, full of characters that I loved and identified with, it's like having a great gossip with your best friends. Her best book yet Marian Keyes

Cathy Kelly is at the top of her game here - a great read
Belfast Sunday Life

Entertaining, moving and as vivid as a screenplay – presents a picture of the lives of Irish women which, like all good fiction, brings the truth into sharp relief
