It’s a beautiful day in Manchester and four friends are meeting for a birthday lunch. But then they witness a shocking accident just metres away which acts as a catalyst for each of them.

For Laura, it’s a wake-up call to heed the ticking of her biological clock. Sensible Jo finds herself throwing caution to the wind in a new relationship. Eve, who has been trying to ignore the worrying lump in her breast, feels helpless and out of control. And happy-go-lucky India is drawn to one of the victims of the accident, causing long-buried secrets to rise to the surface.

This is a novel about the startling and unexpected turns life can take. It’s about luck – good and bad – and about finding bravery and resilience when your world is in turmoil. Above all, it’s about friendship, togetherness and hope.

My Thoughts:

This is a book full of emotion and it really makes you think what you are grateful for. The story is about four very brave ladies who all going through real life situations. Two of the women really struck a chord with me as I have been through something similar but not exactly the same and I really felt for Eve as you don’t really think about health scares until you or someone you know has one then it comes flooding back to you. It is an emotional read but one that you just realise how close your friends and family can be.

I received a advanced reading copy of this book for an honest review.

My Thoughts:

I was given a advanced copy of this book to read and review and was asked to give an honest review. The cover looks so pretty and inviting. I found this a interesting read about a lesbian love affair in India. I felt like I was taken on a journey through out the book and I especially loved the food talk. The author’s message is a bold one but done sensitively as she says you all deserve a chance and embrace it. I look forward to more from Mita Balani.
