Books have the ability to take us somewhere else, to walk in someone else's shoes, to forget the madness of the world. I loved spending time in Catrin, Judith and Lana's Lives as they manoevred their friendhsip through the ups and downs of love, family, relationships and life. Ruth Jones captures female friendships brilliantly within the pages.
It's 1976 and three best friends swear an oath on a Curly Wirly wrapper that they'll always be there for each other. And after a trip of a lifetime they truly belive it. But of Course, life has a habit of getting in the way and when devestating turn of events occurs, their friendship is tested to the limits. A poignant novel about friendship and forgiveness as Jones guides her readers throught the complications of life. With fantastic characterisation, as you'd expect from the co-creator Gavin & Stacey, it's an epic journey.
Books have the ability to take us to another place and let us walk in someone else's shoes. I loved spending time immersed in Catrin, Judith and Lana's lives as they manoeuvred their friendships through the ups and downs of love, family, relationships and life. This one's a contender for my Books of the Year list.
