Description

Under normal circumstances, bohemian, skint Izzie Stock would never have met Maddy Hoare, a Gucci-clad, Beemer-driving urbanite. Their backgrounds and values appear to be a million miles apart. Then, due to their respective husbands' careers, both women are dumped into the English countryside, fish out of water with five young children between them. They are thrown together at a ghastly ladies' lunch and quickly find they have two things in common - an absolute hatred for the petty-mindedness of their neighbours and a longing for the mucky London streets and residents' parking permits they've left behind. When tragedy hits and Maddy's world collapses, the two women decide it's time to shake things up. A chance discovery of Maddy's leads to the launch of a natural cosmetics company from Maddy's kitchen. The friends' subsequent success has implications far beyond their wildest imaginings...show more
