Review by: flipflogg on May 08, 2013 :
A thoroughly enjoyable and absorbing tale of two women from teenage to old age. It is easy to identify with the very human emotions described and the events and decisions taken by both were just what any of us might go through. Sometimes lucky, sometimes unlucky, like the rest of us. I like a book that won't let you put it down and this was one of those. An easy read, as the previous reviewer says, but it doesn't suffer for that - recommended!

Review by: Judith Wrigley on Jan. 25, 2013 :
I really enjoyed reading this book. It’s quite an easy read, but it gives plenty of food for thought, especially for women of a similar age to Naomi and Joss, the two women whose lives are the subject of the book. It would probably be most instructive for younger women, too. Also, it may be an easy read, but the events in the lives portrayed are as surprising as in real life – the story is not predictable, although it has psychological truth. Heartily recommended.
