<DIV><DIV>From the master of literary domestic drama, a page-turning novel that dissects the complexities of female friendship and the choices that define women’s lives.<BR>It is Eleanor who starts the Friday night get-togethers. From her window she sees two young women, with small children, separate, struggling, and plainly lonely—and decides to ask them in.<BR>What began as a lark soon becomes a ritual, and the circle widens to include six very different women. They range in age from Jules, who is twenty-two and wants to be a DJ, to Eleanor herself, a retired professional who walks with a stick. They include one wife, three mothers, three singles, and five working women. All of them, variously, value Friday nights.<BR>Until one of them meets a man—an enigmatic, significant man—and the whole dynamic changes. The bonds that have been so closely forged are tested—and some of them break.<BR>With wit and warmth, Joanna Trollope explores the complexities, the sabotages, and the shifting currents of modern female friendship.</DIV></DIV>
