Product description

Review

In 1991, Maeve Haran scored a bestseller with Having It All, one of the first novels to acknowledge the problems of juggling a career and motherhood. Here she seems likely to strike a similar chord with the over-60s . . . Haran is far too skilled a story-teller for the book to read like an exercise in box-ticking. The characters' own liveliness is reflected in a warm and often funny page-turner that strikes just the right balance between melancholy and defiance (James Walton, Readers Digest)

Maeve Haran,sixty-something and author of the ground breaking 1990s blockbuster Having It All has joined the party with this delightful take on the enduring power of female friendship. If 60 is the new 40 then this is the new chicklit . . . a funny, feisty novel (The Daily Express, Caroline Jowett)

Satisfactory story of female friends facing various challenges as they grow older. Would n't rave about it.

This book is just right for a relaxing holiday read. It is a good, fat book so you can really enjoy getting into it. The things that happen to the 4 friends are a bit cliched but who cares? It is well written and you want to keep turning the pages. Highly recommended. As another reviewer said I would like another book to find out what happens to everyone.

A totally joyful read, wanted to keep on reading, yet also wanted to savour it. An unusual book as it's about 4 women in their 60's ( Hurrah, About time too) Approaching 60 myself , I want to read about women around my age who are still shopping in Zara and Topshop, young at heart but starting to age gracefully. The four life long friends are exactly the type you want to be amongst, I felt really sad when I had finished it and desperate for more.

Being able to identify with all four characters and the things that happened to them in later life, I can say that it hit the nail on the head for 'older age' scenarios, with children, husbands, money and parents. However, if was rather light in places when dealing with serious and heart-rending issues - I think a separate book could have been written for each of the four leading ladies. I really did enjoy it, though, and will recommend it to my peers.

Now comes the BUT (stop reading for a spoiler)

The end was quite ludicrous and badly executed. I'm sure it was difficult to avoid a clichéd happy ending for them all, but for heavens sake, it collapsed into uncharacteristic farce.

For me it was a vaguely entertaining book about a 60 plus group of friends.
Parts of it irritated me especially the breast cancer plot line brought in to create cheap emotion and hysterical humour.
Also a young Polish man becoming the perfect houseguest/carpenter living rent free with one of the older ladies--totally unbelievable.

As a fan of Maeve Haran's books this is by far the best, from page one I was hooked, just couldn't put it down, loved the character ' s & couldn't wait to find out how each one developed through each brilliant written page. The only down side is that I've finished it !!! Would love to know what happens next for the four friends & their families !!
