A perfect friendship; a web of deceit
Perhaps the first thing to say about 'Birmingham Friends' is that is IS the same book as 'Kate and Olivia!' Many apologies to anyone who has bought the same book twice. It was originally published as 'Kate and Olivia,' but my publisher decided it would fit in better with the other books if we re-titled it. This all happened a long while ago but there are still copies of both books about.
The story is one of two friends growing up before and during the Second World War in Birmingham. Olivia is quite a privileged girl, especially by the standards of the time. But the story shows that higher social standing did not necessarily insulate anyone from some of the sad things that could happen to women at that time. I have never forgotten the haunting descriptions I heard from a nurse who had worked in one of the city's mental hospitals just after the war.
As well as being the story of Kate and Olivia and what happened to them, it is also that of Anna, Kate's daughter, after her mother's death in the 1980s.See all Product Description
