A Time For Friends

by Patricia Scanlan

A Time For Friends Synopsis

*** THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER *** When are the boundaries of friendship pushed too far, and when is it time to stop flying over oceans for someone who wouldn't jump over a puddle for you? There comes a time when Hilary Hammond has to make that call. Hilary and Colette O'Mahony have been friends since childhood, but when irrepressible Jonathan Harpur breezes into Hilary's life and goes into business with her, Colette is not best pleased. After their first encounter Colette thinks he's a 'pushy upstart' while he thinks she's 'a snobby little diva'. And so the battle lines are drawn and Hilary is bang in the middle. But as the years roll by and each of them is faced with difficult times and tough decisions, one thing is clear ... to have a friend you must be a friend. And that's when Hilary discovers that sometimes your best friend can be your greatest enemy ... What readers are saying about Patricia Scanlan's novels: 'Utterly magical and wonderful ... warmth and compassion shine through' MARIAN KEYES 'Like being enfolded in a hug from the great writer herself: warm, comforting and full of love' CATHY KELLY 'There can be little doubt that Patricia Scanlan is the prolific queen of contemporary Irish popular fiction' Sunday Times ''There is a heartbreaking authenticity in her observations' Irish Times 'The ultimate comfort read' Glamour 'A bright, sunny read in which these lives interweave with unexpected results' Sunday Express S magazine

A Time For Friends Press Reviews

There's something wonderfully enjoyable about Scanlan's books, which somehow manage to be deliciously escapist and grounded in real, recognisable ordinary life at the same time. --The Irish Independent A comforting read appealing to fans of Maeve Binchy. --Sunday Mirror
