As they grow into the world of the seventies and eighties, the lives of the three best friends are changed forever by two young men, Robin and Jack, and a tragedy which engulfs them all. Against the odds, Tully emerges into young womanhood, marriage and a career. At last Tully Makker has life under control. And then life strikes back in the most unexpected way of all...

Review quote

'You'll never look at life in the same way again. Pick up this book and prepare to have your emotions wrung so completely you'll be sobbing your heart out one minute and laughing through your tears the next. Tully could be any one of us - a young woman who is strong, full of hope and carrying a lot of childhood baggage. Her experiences of pain, despair and betrayal are offset by moments of dazzling joy, love and, above all, friendship. Read it and weep - literally' Company 'A lovely and resonant evocation of that first great bond between woman...It's deeply moving' Anne Rivers Siddons 'As a first novel this is quite astonishing' Bookseller

Customer reviews

This story is definitely not light-hearted or chick-lit. Paullina has written it like as if the characters are real and the events have happened; the struggles, which involve a continuous strain of picking up the pieces throughout life. The book is definitely not one that I believe is easily forgotten, a book that captivate's you in every emotion; when a character was depressed, so was I, when a character was jubiliant, so was I. However, Tully's actions did get on my nerves sometimes, but I realise now that this helped keep the book alive, not knowing what she will do next and why. If I could I would give it three and a half stars just because it is different and can be linked to everyday life.show more

I have tried to read this book several times and can never get the whole way through it without being bored out of my head! If you like Bryce Courtenay then I think you might like this. I am not a Bryce Courtenay fan either obviously. Good Luck with this one if you choose to have a go.show more
