The author of the bestselling Just Between Us introduces us to four new special women in a warm and funny novel about facing change in our lives

Do you know what you'll be doing next year?

Nicole, Virginia, Hope and Sam all think they do.

Hope will still be slogging it out as a working mum, snatching quality time with her children, and trying not to burn her husband, Matt's, dinner.

Her sister, Sam, is going to be climbing to the very top as boss of a record label, turning heads and having her photo emblazoned on the business pages as the toughest, most brilliant music mogul around.

Wild child Nicole reckons she'll still be partying with the girls, possibly snogging a guy here or there, and trying not to get fired for using the office phone to organize her social life.

And grandmother Virginia will be affectionately teasing her beloved husband, Bill, for spending too much time on the golf course and not enough walking the dog or cutting the grass.

But what if fate has other plans for them?

Suddenly life threatens to change beyond recognition for the four women, and they each have to look deep inside themselves to find out what they really want if they are to survive the turmoil ahead. And they will discover that a sense of belonging, a loving family and good friends make all the difference.
