There are good friends. Then there are best friends. Cate Wishart and Margie Holland shared some traumatic teenage years and left school promising to be best friends forever. But two decades later they've drifted to opposite ends of the country and communicate only through Christmas cards. Cate's married to a doctor desired by every woman that meets him and mother to three lively girls. But she's drowning in domesticity, starved of her husband's affection, and yearning for a life of her own. Margie's a senior news producer who deals deftly with everything that live TV can throw at her, yet can't control her drinking or her tele-shopping compulsion. Unmarried, her affair with the network's star correspondent (who has a girl in every war zone) is going nowhere! Until a class reunion brings Cate and Margie back together, reminding them how much fun a best friend can be and sending their lives in surprising new directions!

'Sharp, intelligent and moving; and I suspect many women will recognise parts of themselves within these pages, just as they did in Allison Pearson's I Don't Know How She Does It.' -- Herald on MOTHER'S DAY 'It's warm, energetic and frequently laugh-out-loud funny. It's also sad and pleasingly difficult, avoiding the easy answers to all the dilemmas it throws up... An impressive first work' -- Stirling Observer on MOTHER'S DAY 'A funny and moving story of upper-middle-class angst at the beginning of the 21st century and a reflection on the importance of friends' -- Good Book Guide 'A warm, honest look at life as a modern mother' -- Kate Bradley, Bookseller on MOTHER'S DAY 'A strong debut' -- Publishing News on MOTHER'S DAY 'Perfect read!' -- Woman on MOTHER'S DAY
