Three women, born at the outbreak of World War II, who’ve grown up in widely differing circumstances, form an improbable friendship that sustains them through forty years.
Connie is the youngest member of a large Irish family and Ireland’s too small to contain her. She is beautiful and impulsive. Men love her, while she roars through life, never looking before she leaps – sometimes onto rocks. Nina is English and middle-class, the shy, thoughtful, daughter of an army officer. She marries her boyhood love and has two children before realising how unfulfilled she is, and that painting is her true passion. Fay is American and Jewish, the granddaughter of a holocaust survivor. She’s the ambitious one, who fulfils her dream of becoming a doctor before admitting a darker, more complex side to her nature.
Through love, marriage, children, work, divorce and tragedy, this is a beautifully written and compelling novel of friendship.
