February 2010 Debut of the Month.
I don’t know what it is about the Irish girls but when they write they certainly have warmth and understanding that shines through their work. This is a newcomer with an impressive debut about female friendship too easily shattered and then left to die for too long. It’s a lovely read with some unexpected answers.
What would it take to destroy your closest friendship? Alison and Ciara meet at college in Dublin and soon become firm allies, sharing a flat and facing the world together. Ciara is all that Alison aspires to be - sassy, confident and fearless. Although their backgrounds could not be more different, they find solace and humour in each other's company. That is until gorgeous Dan Abernethy, a young medical student, enters their lives, and everything changes irrevocably. Love turns Alison's world upside down and a terrible betrayal threatens everything she holds dear. It is only when tragedy strikes many years later that Alison and Ciara are offered a chance at redemption.
