Summary

Each month best friends Claudia, Sal, Ella and Laura meet for drinks, celebrating 45 years of friendship.

Sal had spent a lifetime building her career, but she hadn't banked on the one thing over which she had no control.

Claudia loved her urban existence. But, as many women will know, other people's needs always seem to come first.

Ella is ready to try something different. But she hadn't bargained on quite such a radical change.

And Laura succumbed to the oldest cliché in the book. But it didn't make it any easier to accept.

Outside of the supportive world of their friendships, they find their lives are far from what they expected - they didn't bargain on getting old.

Good characters and good narration

Well written story with good characters. I was not sure about this book from the audio bio but I took a punt and am glad that I did. Good narration by Jilly Bond and the plot line flows nicely. A group of close friends who met at university forty years before are now having to deal with the process of ageing (which comes to us all in the end!) and the twists and turns life unexpectedly takes just when you think you’ve done all the hard work and can sit back and enjoy life…you just never know what fate has in store for you and this book certainly gives a good insight into ‘middle age’ and what that may mean to some people.
