Laura Bloom has such a unique talent for modern historical fiction and this time it was a joy to be catapulted back to the 1970s. When I turned the last page I was so sad to say goodbye to her beautifully observed characters. A delight from start to finish!' Liane Moriarty It's 1977, and warm, bohemian Libby, a stay-at-home mother, genius entertainer and gifted cook, is lonely. When she meets Carol - recently emigrated from London, adrift and in a controlling marriage - and Anna, who loves her career, but not her marriage, and is craving a life that feels always out of reach, the three women form an unexpected bond. Their exes aren't happy about it, though, and neither are their children. Soon the women will be forced into a reckoning that will lay their futures - and their friendships - on the line. With a back drop of inner city grunge, far-out parties and ABBA songs, The Women and The Girls is a funny, questioning and moving novel about love, work, family, friendship and freedom.
