From Spike1972:

Given to me by my Mum. Reserved for up-coming Release Challenge.



There were four of them: young women employed at an exclusive jewellery store in the 1960s. Close friendships were forged as Natasha, Prudence, Rachel and Maisie worked together. Now, in 1980, Natasha, newly divorced and back from America, decides there must be a reunion.

Am really busy with exams/intv for next 3 weeks (first 2 esp), but plan to start reading this book in about 2 weeks time - hopefully leave in (or en route) Pontypool 3 June - This will be the first book I have read for pleasure in a long time, so I am going to enjoy the experience!

Journal Entry 4 by wingAnonymousFinderwing on Tuesday, May 31, 2005
When I initially picked up this book, I was frustrated by the fact that the female characters were all women with a capital W. From Rachel who wanted to be the ‘power behind the throne’, to Natasha who wielded power, but of a purely sexual nature, these women jarred on my nerves. If there was to be a murder by Maisie’s mad husband, I could cheerfully have nominated The Woman, who if you happen to be female, is to blame for many of life’s greater misfortunes. However, as I continued to read, I found myself increasingly drawn to the lives of these characters, and even to care about their stories. As the relationship between the female characters began to develop, it even struck a chord in some places. The experience of reading about female friendships that had lasted across lifetimes and generations, trivial acts of everyday life and the tragedies that form part of the blend was a powerful and reminiscent mix. As I was reading, it seemed to me just that; a particularly female experience that was being described, and I enjoyed being slowly won round and immersed as a reader. For those of you lucky enough to be the next to find this book, I hope it gives you as much pleasure to read, as it did me, and I can appreciate the fact that somebody loved it enough to pass it along, as a good book is invariably difficult to let go. All that remains for me to say is that I am sure this book will continue to make many ‘new friends’, and enjoy!

PS. I plan to send this book on its travels on Friday 3rd June - somewhere around the Pontypool area, or enroute.
