‘You’ll never look at life in the same way again. Pick up this book and prepare to have your emotions wrung so completely you’ll be sobbing your heart out one minute and laughing through your tears the next. Tully could be any one of us – a young woman who is strong, full of hope and carrying a lot of childhood baggage. Her experiences of pain, despair and betrayal are offset by moments of dazzling joy, love and, above all, friendship. Read it and weep – literally’ Company
‘A lovely and resonant evocation of that first great bond between woman…It’s deeply moving’ Anne Rivers Siddons

This book is an amazing find, I read it approx 15 yrs ago, and no other book has ever matched up, infact I am still in pursuit of another book that will take my breath away as Tully did.
It not only is a heartwrenching story of love, but also of friendship and how to overcome adversity. I fell in love with Tully Makker, and felt like I had lost a friend when the book ended. The character has been crafted so well by Paulinna Simons, you love her, you hate her, you understand her, you don't understand her, its a joy to unravel it all.
In my view it is Paulinna Simon's best work, and although I loved the Bronze Horseman, it just did'nt effect me in the same way as Tully did.
I have subsequently bought this book for my closest friends, and they too have all thought it was a very special find.
Buy this book, you will not be disappointed, only when it ends and Tully Makker is'nt in your life anymore.
Tully is Simons' original tough, independent woman with endearing vulnerabilities who paved the way for Tatiana in the Bronze Horseman. The best read in a long time, this novel is un-put-downable!
