Coming soon...........


A brand new novel from Laura Essendine available soon on Funny, heart-breaking, romantic and restoring your faith in friendship. A book to snuggle up with and wallow in.

Judi, Aurora, Mel and Paula, friends for over twenty years, supporting each other from ante-natal classes to university applications. Until their lives change irrevocably over six months.

Paula – perfect housekeeper and pillar of the community who's thrown into emotional and domestic chaos by the death of her mother and the reappearance of Charles Waddington.

Mel – whose three children need to undergo tests for a fatal, genetic condition but only she appreciates the devastation the test results will bring.

Aurora – failed actress, radio presenter and self-proclaimed sex-goddess who refuses to relinquish her youth or her hold on a succession of toy-boys until a young American forces her to expose a past that she’d buried long ago.

Judi – who'd abandoned her dreams to travel and write when she fell pregnant at university. Twenty-five years and four children later, she unwittingly becomes a motivational guru for The Menopause Generation. The media attention and book advance turn her dreams to reality but success is marred by Aurora’s jealousy and increasing alienation.

Is it possible to turn your past into your future and, if you do, will it be everything you’d hoped for, or the one thing you were always afraid of?

Make friends with Judi, Aurora, Mel and Paula before the novel's release in July and then join them during the six months that will change their lives for ever.
