Three best friends take the same Eurostar to Paris for a girls' weekend, but take separate trains back. What happened that weekend? A novel set in Paris about motherhood, friendship, secrets, and the face we present to the world.
'A perfect holiday read, compulsively readable but also intriguing, thought-provoking and so good on female friendship' Laura Marshall, author of Friend Request.
Three best friends. A weekend away. And a whole lot of baggage.
Alice, Nina and Jules have been best friends for twenty years. They met in Paris and return there once a year, to relive their youth, leave the troubles of home behind, and indulge in each other's friendship and warmth. But this year, aged thirty-nine, the cracks in their relationships are starting to show...
After their weekend together in Paris, the three women never speak again. Each claims the other two ghosted them. But is there more to the story?
