Alison has everything she ever dreamed of. Smart, sophisticated, married to a successful cardiologist, she's at the top of her career in journalism. Why, then, does she wonder if this is all there is? Ginger is just the opposite. She flunked out of university, is a failed actress who has never had a relationship lasting more than a month, and only has somewhere to live because she was her eccentric grandmother's favourite. Lia alone is perfectly content with her life. Three women, with nothing in common, nothing at all - except that they are all about to have their first child. Meeting each other will change all their lives as doubt becomes certainty, old sins are forgiven, and as what begins as friendship ends in betrayal. These Foolish Things is the second novel of contemporary relationships by the highly praised author of More Innocent Times ('A wonderfully woven tale of tangled relationships. I loved it.' Penny Vincenzi) and firmly establishes Imogen Parker as a writer of compelling, totally absorbing stories for our times.
