A novel about friendship and making the most of life from the bestselling author of Having It All, The Time of Their Lives and An Italian Holiday.
Maeve Haran is an Oxford law graduate, former television producer and mother of three grown-up children. Her first novel, Having It All, which explored the dilemmas of balancing career and motherhood, caused a sensation and took her all around the world. Maeve has written a number of further contemporary novels and two historical novels, plus a work of non-fiction celebrating life's small pleasures. Her books have been translated into twenty-six languages, and two have been shortlisted for the Romantic Novel of the Year award. She lives in North London with her husband (a very tall Scotsman) and a scruffy Tibetan terrier. They also spend time at their much-loved cottage in Sussex.
