Friday nights, the best night of the week, the night they all looked forward to more than they cared to admit - talking, drinking, laughing and crying together.

They were six female friends, different in age and circumstances, but with one common need: the warmth and support of their Friday nights. It was a time to share secrets and fears, triumphs and tragedies and, above all, to feel safe in the company of women friends. But things never stay the same forever, especially when a man is introduced into the mix... Download and start listening now!

    " I'm a Trollope fan - love domestic tales set in England - but this isn't one of my favorites. Although it has its moments, none of the six women who compose this tale of female friendship are as carefully and attentively developed as I would have liked. Some of them are downright unlikable, and none of them is particularly tolerant of each other. I found Eleanor, the older retired woman who brings them all together, to be particularly exasperating - she is so ready to let others know her opinions of them and their behavior. It comes across as intolerably smug and self-righteous, although I suspect we're supposed to admire her even as we are occasionally irritated by her. Anyway, I did enjoy Trollope's smooth prose and excellent dialogue, as well as her sparks of humor - these carried me through fairly happily to the end of the book. "

    " This did not live up to my expectations of a Joanna Trollope novel (usually compulsive reading). I actually found it boring and I didn't really get the point of the narrative (All that effort - for what?) This could have been because all of the characters came across as totally self-absorbed, tedious and unlikeable...Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn! (About any of them). "

    " Strange book especially for Trollope. Kept my interest going especially as I was laid up after an op. "

    " This book has so irritated me that I thus far have not finished it, with no great intention to do so. I found the characters to be one dimensional, and were not developed enough to enable me to feel as though I had an understanding of them. THe build up to the introduction of a man to the group was so hyped up, I put the book down. Maybe I have missed the point somewhere, but thus far, it eludes me "
