Us Three

by Ruth Jones

Humour (fiction) Relationship Stories

Us Three Synopsis

The new novel from Ruth Jones, co-creator of Gavin & Stacey and author of the smash-hit, number one bestselling debut, Never Greener.

Friends forever is a difficult promise to keep...

Meet Lana, Judith and Catrin. Best friends since primary school when they swore an oath on a Curly Wurly wrapper that they would always be there for each other, come what may.

After the trip of a lifetime, the three girls are closer than ever. But an unexpected turn of events shakes the foundation of their friendship to its core, leaving their future in doubt - there's simply too much to forgive, let alone forget. An innocent childhood promise they once made now seems impossible to keep . . .

Packed with all the heart and empathy that made Ruth's name as a screenwriter and now author, Us Three is a funny, moving and uplifting novel about life's complications, the power of friendship and how it defines us all.

Prepare to meet characters you'll feel you've known all your life - prepare to meet Us Three.

A poignant novel about friendship and forgiveness . . . with fantastic characterisation, as you'd expect from the co-creator of Gavin & Stacey, it's an epic journey - Woman & Home
