    Spectacular writing, pure genius

    This book can only be described as spectacular and its writer is nothing short of superb. The skill with which the lives of her characters intertwined was remarkable. I read on with eager excitement through each woman's story waiting to uncover whose lives had crossed her path and how. Sheer genius was evident through this literary marvel. These were ordinary women, existing in today's complex world, each with struggles, insecurities and pasts of their own, living their best lives. The book was so modern, so current. I particularly loved learning of their individual responses to Brexit as it has been such an ever present part of our vernacular for so long. Their loves too, their sexual inhibitions and lack of, dictated by societal norms and expectation was refreshing to read about. I loved this book so much. I read it on my Kindle but I will purchase a hardback copy to keep and read and reread for years to come. I'm looking forward very much already to reading it again!!!

    Intoxicating!

    I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN, IT BECAME MY FRIEND. EACH CHARACTER CARRIED ME WITH THEM THROUGH SOME VERY SAD AND UNJUST TIMES BUT ALSO HAPPINESS AND ACHIEVEMENT. PERFECTLY BELIEVABLE CHARACTERS GIVE A REMARKABLE INSIGHT TO .HISTORIES THAT HAVE BEEN HIDDEN FOR TOO LONG AND A COMPLEX PRESENT THAT LINKS US ALL IN A WAY THAT WE MAY NOT AT FIRST REALISE OR UNDERSTAND. I AM READING IT AGAIN SOON.
