Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A lovely new, warm, Irish voice telling the story of three friends and how outwardly their lives seem content but inwardly … oh dear. It is very much Cathy Kelly territory.

Comparison: Cathy Kelly, Sheila O’Flanagan, Patricia Scanlan.
Similar this month: Sinead Moriarty, Sophie King.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
