When We Were Sisters by Beth Miller
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

If you grew up in the UK in the 1970s then there’ll be lots about this book that will have you happily reminiscing and even laughing out loud. It’s concerns two girls who were the best of friends as teenagers till their parents ran off with each other and their worlds imploded. Decades later the women meet again and the horror and humour of growing up and their unusual situation is unravelled. Told in alternating chapters between the two women this is witty, poignant, insightful page turning stuff.

If you like Beth Miller you might also like to read books by Marian Keyes, Maggie O’Farrell and Liane Moriarty.
