Sarah Broadhurst's view...

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.

Comparison: Maeve Binchy, Patricia Scanlan, Anita Shreve.

Synopsis

Barefoot Over Stones by Liz Lyons

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.
