Eight of Cups
by Mirren Jones
Thirty years, six women, one question. Dreams, ambitions, pleasures, plans and fears. For Diane, Nancy and friends, leaving Edinburgh University in the mid 1970s, such attachments initially serve them well. But as 40 looms, the going gets tougher. The old attachments tighten their grip. Eventually each woman is forced to confront her own reality. Is there still time to rescue their lives?
