Publisher's Summary

Lifelong friends, now in their sixties, James, a teacher, and Hugh, a TV personality, both live with attractive women 25 years their junior. But the age difference is a time bomb, ticking away at the heart of both relationships.
Kate's hunger for a life more in keeping with her own age threatens to bring her eight years with James to an end. And how is Julia to cope when her own career begins to blossom while Hugh's is withering before their eyes? The arrival of Miss Beatrice Bachelor, a razor-sharp Oxford spinster, fuels the discontent in both girls.

Wish there had been at least one more chapter

I had listened to this title many years ago and decided to purchase it on Audible since I enjoy Trollope's cozy reads. It was as enjoyable the second go around but I forgot how abruptly it ends. I wish there had been one more chapter, a little bit more neatness of tying up loose ends, but maybe that is because I was so involved in the characters. I did think that the girlfriend made awful relationship choices and life decisions, but I like that Trollope reveals the consequences to her choices without preaching or being predictable.

I loved this book

A great book with beautiful narration. A lovely mix of eclectic characters and I did not want it to end.
