5.0 out of 5 stars You can't stop reading it once you start! 23 Nov 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is really good. If you have seen the TV series and you liked it, this book is a must. It contains more details than the TV series and even there are four friends instead of three, which makes this book more interesting. The author describes every episode in such a lively way that you can't help yourself feeling inside the story, and it is a mixture of mystery and romance. The ending is great and this book is far much better than the TV series. You must read it to fully understand what I mean.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 20 Oct 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Originally published in 1982 when Conran was 50 years old, this book is as great today as it was when first written.
The story chronicles the lives of five women, four of whom meet up at a Swiss Finishing School. It follows the their growth to maturity as each one carves a successful future for themselves. However, their lives are laced together by a shared secret!
Lavishly descriptive, you will be seduced by the glamour as well as the hard realities that the five women have to endure. Ultimately, it is a book about friendship and what it means to be a woman. Conran writes with heartfelt understanding and accuracy. She is first rate!
I believe a wealth of Conran's life experience (and cultural awareness) is evident in the development of the characters. And, I can honestly say as a man, that my understanding and empathy for women has changed for the better.
Shirley is a real woman and she writes from a real womans perspective. The intimacy, pain and passions of the characters are viewed from an intimately feminine standpoint. I feel I have shared something of what was in the authors mind and the minds of the characters in this magical book. Thankyou Shirley

5.0 out of 5 stars This book has everything 15 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was the very first book i read by choice and i have loved it ever since. I think i have read it at least 20 times.
It has everything you could want, the girls are all different and i just loved Pagan and her relationship with the Prince.
If you are looking for a book with intrigue, diversity and passion, this book is a must.
If I had to recommend one book in my life it would be this one. Buy it now, i assure you, you won't be able to put it down.
