When We Were Friends by Tina Seskis

When We Were FriendsWhen We Were Friends by Tina Seskis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Well what a journey I have traveled whilst reading this!

We have six very different women, and from varying backgrounds, but all tied together from their University days, they had promised to meet up each year.

They are now in their 40's.

They meet up in Hyde Park, they get very drunk and you know what that means? People say and do stupid things. Things they wouldn't normally do and say things they wouldn't normally say.

Something happens which changes course of all of their lives.

We all like to hang onto our Youth of yesterday but sometimes going backwards is not all what its cracked up to be, as they later find out.

You may find it a bit slow at first and in some places, but stick with it, there are depths within this book that you don't realize until later.

Thoroughly enjoyed this.

An earlier version of this novel was published under the title A SERPENTINE AFFAIR*

The addictive new novel from Tina Seskis, author of One Step Too Far.

It had always been the six of us.

Since we met at university twenty-five years ago, we'd faced everything together. Break-ups and marriages, motherhood and death. We were closer than sisters; the edges of our lives bled into each other.

But that was before the night of the reunion. The night of exposed secrets and jagged accusations. The night when everything changed.

And then we were five.
