From the bestselling author of SOMEONE LIKE YOU and WHAT SHE WANTS comes an uplifting novel about how three very different women cope with the complexities of their lives – relationships, careers, and families – to find fulfilment.

Full of Cathy Kelly's trademark warmth, romance, optimism and wit.

In the Irish country town of Kinvara, the fabulous MIller girls are generally reckoned to have it all… There’s Stella with the looks of a Renaissance Madonna and a brilliant lawyer’s mind. A single mum who has combined work and raising her daughter with aplomb, the only thing missing from her life is the right man. Now, at last, she’s going to get a second chance…

Tara is the sharp, cool one. At the top of her TV career, she’s recently married the love of her life, the charming Finn, after a whirlwind romance of just six months.

And shy, beautiful Holly is living a bohemian life that all her old classmates envy, with artistic friends and a beautiful apartment where her creative talents find an outlet.

At the centre of the family is their mother, Rose, calm, elegant and about to celebrate her fortieth wedding. But nothing in the lives of Rose and her daughters is as it seems, and as plans are made for the party of the decade, the secret heartaches the four women have kept hidden, even from the each other, begin to emerge. Are they strong enough to deal with the truth about their golden lives?

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.’
