Freya Wyley meets Nancy Holdaway amid the wild celebrations of VE Day, the prelude to a devoted and competitive friendship...


Freya, ambitious and outspoken, pursues a career on Fleet Street while Nancy, less self-confident, struggles to get her first novel published. 


Both friends become entangled with Robert Cosway, a charismatic young man whose own ambition will have a momentous bearing on their lives. 


'Flitting from war-haunted Oxford to the bright new shallows of the 1960s, Freya plots the unpredictable course of a woman's life and loves in extraordinary times.

'(an) Elena Ferrante-like tale of female friends.' - Guardian 


'Quinn’s characters, particularly the vivid, maddening, wilful, foul-mouthed and frequently funny Freya, will continue to live on long after reaching the final line of this wonderful novel.' - Independent
