Summary

Another warm and uplifting book from the author of The Kicking the Bucket List

Has their friendship stood the test of time? 

The class of ’72, Sara, Ally, Jo and Mitch were as close as sisters, then life intervened and the four friends lost touch. Now in her 60s, Sara has realised - late in the day - that those women were the best friends she’d ever had and is determined to get the gang back together. 

Ally is facing a huge turning point in her life, and Jo, after years of being chief cook and bottle washer, needs to put herself first after a wake-up call. 

None of them know what happened to Mitch. The coolest and most enigmatic of the foursome doesn’t want to be found, and it seems that even after all these years, the women are still keeping a few secrets from each other....

A very real tale that is thought provoking as well as an excellent listen.

A beautiful story, sensitively told
and beautifully read with several voices. Enjoyable and satisfying - I loved it. One of the best audiobooks I’ve listened to. I’m looking out other books by the same author.!

I'll be there for you...

What a wonderful story!
I identified with each of the characters. They're close to me in age, I'm widowed and lost my husband when he was only 46. I don't know how I would have made it through so.e situations if I didn't have my great friends. One of my closest friends passed away recently, and another one ghosted me about that years ago. I don't know why. All the time I listened to these ladies, I wished there was a real TV show like the one in the book, so I could get closure from him.
I enjoyed the descriptions of each woman's life, plus the music, clothes, etc. in the 1979s and the present.
I'm looking forward with to more by this author and treasuring my true friends.
