Haven't you heard? Sixty is the new forty. . .

Husbands may come and go but friends last forever

You’ll get by with a little help from your friends

Each month best friends Claudia, Sal, Ella and Laura meet for drinks, celebrating 45 years of friendship. They know each other and their lives inside out. Their dreams, ambitions, husbands, lovers, children, hopes, fears, the paths taken and not taken . . .

Sal has spent a lifetime building up a successful career but she hadn’t banked on the one thing she had no control over.

Claudia loves living in the city – the thought of the country sent shivers down her spine. But, as many women will know, other people’s needs always seem to come first . . .

Ella is ready to try something different. But she hadn’t bargained on a complete life change.

Laura has always trusted her husband, yet suddenly she isn’t so sure.

Life may not always be kind, but it has taught them one thing, it’s always better with friends. And maybe it’s time to kick off their flatties and have some fun . . .

‘Warm, clever, wise and extremely funny. Among its many virtues are creating lovable characters and insights that will strike a chord with everyone’ Daily Mail

‘Anyone who thinks sixty is when you swap stilettos for flats and designer gear for elasticated waists needs to read this funny feisty novel’Daily Express

MEDIA REVIEWS

In 1991, Maeve Haran scored a bestseller with Having It All, one of the first novels to acknowledge the problems of juggling a career and motherhood. Here she seems likely to strike a similar chord with the over-60s . . . Haran is far too skilled a story-teller for the book to read like an exercise in box-ticking. The characters' own liveliness is reflected in a warm and often funny page-turner that strikes just the right balance between melancholy and defiance - James Walton, Readers Digest

Maeve Haran,sixty-something and author of the ground breaking 1990s blockbuster Having It All has joined the party with this delightful take on the enduring power of female friendship. If 60 is the new 40 then this is the new chicklit . . . a funny, feisty novel - The Daily Express, Caroline Jowett
