How we met
by Katy Regan
The author describes this as a book about friendship. It is also about loss, grief, parenthood, love and growing up.
A group of friends, who met at university, come to terms with the loss of one of their number, each dealing with guilt feelings and secrets in their own way as they try to honour the memory of their friend and adjust their relationships in her absence. The desire to hold on to a time of youth and fun, with everything to look forward to, permeates the story and Olivia's death has become the catalyst for change in the eyes of her friends.
There is quite a high degree of insight and the relationships, conflicts, disappointments and changes are handled with a lot of empathy and some wit and charm.
I would recommend it as a holiday read or for readers looking for something that is not too heavy.
