"Four women who share a special history. Four friends reunited. In September 1962 four very different girls from different worlds meet on their first day at school. Artemis Lowther is the daughter of a self-made man; Geraldine is from an upper-class family; Kiki's father is a doctor and Primmie Surtees is a scholarship girl. For seven years they are inseparable, and when they leave school and move into a flat in London together it seems that life can only get better. It doesn't take long, though, for their illusions about each other to be shattered, and - amid secrets and heartbreak - their relationship begins to disintegrate, and they go their separate ways. Each of the women has a reason for not wishing to rekindle their friendship, so years later, when Primmie inherits a Cornish smallholding and posts a message on Friends Reunited in the hope that her old friends will make contact, the results are surprising. . ." --
