Event in collaboration with the Borders Book Festival
Join us in partnership with the Borders Book Festival on Sat 17th June when Joanna Trollope will be talking about her new novel, City of Friends.
Like Mary Wesley and Anne Tyler before her, Joanna Trollope has that ability to get to the heart of life, often finding truth in the detail. City of Friends is a stunning story with a contemporary setting, it features a snapshot of the lives of four girls who met at university and remain friends as their careers in the City develop.
When Stacey Grant loses her high powered job she is forced to reconcile her old life with the new. One without professional achievements or meetings, but instead, long days at home with her dog and ailing mother, waiting for her successful husband to come home. She at least has her friends to fall back on – Beth, Melissa and Gaby.
But when Stacey’s redundancy forces an old betrayal to emerge, their long cherished friendships will be pushed to their limits.
