Summary
Anna, Molly, Ming, Caroline, Helen: the Old Friends. Since adopting their official name aged 11, they have seen each other through careers, children, illnesses, marriage, divorce, addiction, fame, fall outs. But now, Anna - fiercely loved mother and friend, and the Old Friends' glue - is diagnosed with cancer again, and this time, tired of recoveries and relapses, pitying looks and exhausting regimes, she simply says: no more. As her health declines, the politics of the still lived-in world merge with memories of the past while each Old Friend tries to accept the truth of what is happening: they are losing someone they cannot imagine life without. Some will fight her decision, some will accept it, but all will rejoice in a life fully lived
Summary
A group of friends who have faced everything together since girlhood gather once more in the wake of their leader's terminal illness to support her and each other through such challenges as remarriage, a rebellious daughter, a sibling's mental health crisis and a career setback
