"Ambitious and artful...Drabble reminds us why we still love to read."
Liz, Alix and Ester have been part of one another's lives since their Cambridge days twenty-five years ago. Liz is a successful psychotherapist, Alix is a wife and mother, still pursuing politics, and Esther is an academic. As we follow them through the next five years we see their world changing around them, and we see each woman confronted with difficult, often painful, truths--about this new world, and more profoundly, about herself within it.
