It's 1977, and warm, bohemian Libby - stay-at-home mother, genius entertainer and gifted cook - is lonely. When she meets Carol, who has recently emigrated from London with her controlling husband and is feeling adrift, and Anna, who loves her career but not her marriage, the women form an unexpected bond.Their husbands aren't happy about it, and neither are their daughters.Set against a backdrop of inner-city grunge and 70s glamour, far-out parties and ABBA songs, The Women And The Girls is a funny, questioning and moving novel about love, friendship, work, family, and freedom.
