Circle Of Friends

Maeve Binchy

£8.99 £8.36

Melissa says: I cannot recommend it enough: as a coming of age story, as a satisfying romance, as one of those period pieces (it is set in the late 1950s) that is somehow still relevant and as a tonic, because it is funny and contains girls who are funny, funny like the women I know, funny like my friends are when we're talking to each other. In a year full of bleak things, reading Circle of Friends was like lighting a candle. No, ten candles. Enough to light up a dark room on a rainy day. https://tinyletter.com/OfBooksandBeauty/letters/beauty-by-the-book-2
