Four very different women are drawn together in the warm and engaging new novel by the bestselling author of JUST BETWEEN US.

Good times or bad, friends are always there…

In the beautiful town of Dunmore, four women understand what friendship really means. Abby's TV career is taking off, but her marriage to Tom is rocky. Meanwhile, her teenage daughter Jess despairs of ever finding a boyfriend. Lizzie has time for everyone: her grown-up children, her friends, even her ex-husband Myles, but never for herself. And then there's Erin, married and back in Ireland after eight years in Chicago. But can she face up to her past?

When tragedy strikes, it rocks the small town. Drawn together in their sadness, the four women realise that life is for living, and they need to grab it with both hands…

‘A compulsive read.’ Woman’s Weekly

‘Cathy Kelly’s new book is her most compassionate and compelling so far.’ Irish Independent

Cathy Kelly

About the Author


Novelist Cathy Kelly was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, brought up in Dublin and started her working life as a journalist in an Irish national newspaper. She worked as both a news and feature reporter, and worked as the paper’s film critic for five years, as well as being the agony aunt for seven years.

Her first book, Woman To Woman, was published in 1997 and was an instant bestseller, spending eight weeks at number one on the Irish bestseller charts. Her subsequent novels have been number ones all around the world and are published in many different languages.

She’s just finished her eleventh novel, Once in a Lifetime, which was published in 2009. Cathy lives in Wicklow in Ireland with her partner, John, and their twin sons, Murray and Dylan.

In 2005, she was appointed as a UNICEF Ireland Ambassador. She’s since visited Mozambique and Rwanda as part of her work with UNICEF. Global Parenting – caring for children orphaned or affected by HIV/AIDS – is the main focus of her work with UNICEF.

In her novel, ‘Past Secrets’, Cathy highlighted the issue of HIV/AIDS and UNICEF’s work on the issue by including the following in the book’s afterword:

‘Every minutes of every day, a child under the age of 15 dies of an AIDS –related illness. If this book took you four days to read, 5,760 children will have died from AIDS during this time. Please support UNICEF’s ‘Unite For Children, Unite Against AIDS’ campaign. You can help UNICEF help millions of children who are missing their childhoods because of HIV/AIDS.’
