Summary

Gripping, emotional and uplifting – a novel about the true power of friendship. 

The simple fact of the matter is that Iris loves life. Maybe she’s forgotten that. Sometimes that happens, doesn’t it? To the best of us? All I have to do is remind her of that one simple fact. 

Monday morning starts like any other – until Terry discovers her best friend Iris has gone missing. Finding her takes Terry, Iris and Terry’s confused father Eugene, into an extraordinary journey – one that will change all of their lives. And, along the way, what should be the worst six days of Terry’s life turn into the best.

Because friendship teaches us all to be brave. And, sometimes, the rules are made to be broken.

"As a celebration of female friendship, you need look no further. A tear-inducing read with undeniable warmth." (Woman)

"A superb writer – the Irish Jojo Moyes." (Irish Examiner)
