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)

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.
Despite all this, I did find myself enjoying the book and taking an interest in the characters' reactions. It may be a good distraction if you have time to fill in.
Only for those who like happy ever after books
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.
