Publisher's Summary

In their favourite café, a group of female friends meet regularly to discuss their troubles; but even friends can't always tell each other the truth. Cynthia is happily married to her lifelong sweetheart, but not even their present wealth and security makes her willing to reveal the abuse and trauma they suffered as children. Meriel's husband has abandoned her for another woman. And well meaning but snobbish Joanne can't admit that behind her prosperous façade, she's struggling for every penny. As new people enter their lives, these women must draw on all their resources to meet the challenges thrown at them. But can they learn to rely on each other, or will they stand alone?

Friends and Secrets

I loved this book so much I could hardly bear to switch it off. Anne Cater is a fantastic reader, her lovely Welsh accent and mastery of character roles make this almost like listening to a play. It is a great story, performed with flair and warmth. MORE PLEASE!

Good modern drama

I normally read detective stories, but decided to try this author out - I really enjoyed it. A good narrator and an interesting and developing story line. I would recommend this book, but especially to women.
