“A careful and compelling examination of one man’s insidious effect on a group of female friends, as memorable as it is readable.”—Publishers WeeklyJoanna Trollope’s warm, insightful novel stars Eleanor, who, in a chance encounter, invites two young mothers into her home and slowly begins to connect with them and their friends. So it begins: a Friday night social circle, full of generosity and warmth and heart. But when one of them meets a man, new issues arise: Can female friendships withstand the jealousies and intricacies of love? Trollope opens a window onto six very different women’s lives, their passions and their sorrows, and explores with insight and humanity the shifting currents of friendship.
Joanna Trollope, the nationally bestselling author of seventeen other books, including Second Honeymoon, Brother & Sister, Marrying the Mistress, and The Rector’s Wife, lives in Gloucestershire, England.
