From the Winner of the Stella Prize for The Natural Way of Things
Four older women have a lifelong friendship of the best kind: loving, practical, frank and steadfast. But when Sylvie dies, the ground shifts for the remaining three. Can they survive together without her? They are Jude, a once-famous restaurateur, Wendy, an acclaimed public intellectual, and Adele, a renowned actress now out of work. Struggling to recall exactly why they've remained close all these years, the grieving women gather for Christmas at Sylvie's old beach house, to clean the place out before it is sold. Without Sylvie to maintain the group's equilibrium, frustrations build and painful memories press in. Fraying tempers, an elderly dog, unwelcome guests and too much wine collide in a storm that brings long-buried hurts to the surface - and threatens to sweep away their friendship for good.
“A compelling and vivid look at the friendships we make as women. Honest, unsettling and, like all good literature, had me asking questions about life and myself.” HEATHER ROSE, Stella Prize-winning author of The Museum of Modern Love
Profile Avatar

So realistic depiction of duality of our ordinary selves- our strengths, roles that can hold us captive until we let go Expectations of ourselves and others. Challenges us all- there is always another way to choose to live life, where we at last become connected with ourselves and others at another level. We are the key. All we have in within us. This inspiring story can be anyone’s story. Hi
