About the Author

Helen Warner is a former Head of Daytime at both ITV & Channel 4, where she was responsible for a variety of TV shows including Come Dine With Me, Loose Women, Good Morning Britain and Judge Rinder. Helen writes her novels on the train to work in London from her home in Essex, which she shares with her husband and their two children.


"Warner uses a realistic tone in this debut novel, and she keeps the pages turning without being bogged down by minutiae. Over the course of 20 years, each secret is revealed, but Warner leaves the deepest one until the very end. With a story full of lies, betrayals, deception, and infidelity, readers won't be able to get enough of this story, particularly the final revelation and conclusion. This book will be at home in public libraries where women's fiction with a focus on female friendships is popular." -Booklist

"Told year by year for 20 years, Warner's character-driven novel follows the growth of four women. The characters are realistic and well developed, flawed, and easy to distinguish. The intense portrayal of modern life, women's friendships and problems may satisfy fans of Debbie Macomber or Alice Adam's Invincible Summer."-Library Journal

"A moving and compelling journey through the highs and lows of female friendship - just fabulous!" -Sharon Osbourne

"A real page-turner that perfectly captures the power of friendship to get you through the worst of times. Would make a great movie!" -Piers Morgan (Good Morning Britain)

"Moving, funny and compelling; novels delving into the complexities of female friendship don't come much better than this." - Jane Moore (The Sun & Loose Women)
