Description

Have you ever imagined a different life?

Have you ever stood at a crossroads, undecided? Have you ever had a moment when you wanted to roar?


From much-loved, international bestseller Cecelia Ahern come stories for all of us: the women who befriend us, the women who encourage us, the women who make us brave. From The Woman Who Slowly Disappeared to The Woman Who Returned and Exchanged her Husband, discover thirty touching, often hilarious, stories and meet thirty very different women. Each discovers her strength; each realizes she holds the power to make a change.


Witty, tender, surprising, these keenly observed tales speak to us all, and capture the moment when we all want to roar.



A Radio 2 Bookclub Choice.



'These stories sing and cry and shout and whisper from the page. They're sharp, clever, witty...a joy to read.'
Donal Ryan, international bestselling author of The Spinning Heart
