9780002261784: Just Between Us

From the bestselling author of SOMEONE LIKE YOU and WHAT SHE WANTS an uplifiting novel about how three very different women cope with the complexities of their lives – relationships, careers, and families – to find fulfilment. Full of Cathy Kelly's trademark warmth, romance, optimism and wit.

n the Irish country town of Kinvara, the fabulous MIller girls are generally reckoned to have it all… There’s Stella with the looks of a Renaissance Madonna and a brilliant lawyer’s mind. A single mum who has combined work and raising her daughter with aplomb, the only thing missing from her life is the right mam. Now, at last, she’s going to get a second chance…
Tara is the sharp, cool one. At the top of her TV career, she’s recently married the love of her life, the charming Finn, after a whirlwind romance of just six months.
And shy beautiful Holly is living a bohemian life that all her old classmates envy, with artistic friends and a beautiful apartment where her creative talents find an outlet.
At the centre of the family is their mother, Rose, calm elegant and about to celebrate her fortieth wedding. But nothing in the lives of Rose and her daughters is as it seems, and as plans are made for the party of the decade, the secret heartaches the four women have kept hidden, even from the each other, begin to emerge. Are they strong enough to deal with the truth about their golden lives?

Review:

On the surface, Rose Miller, the heroine of Cathy Kelly's Just Between Us, has a golden life: she's just about to celebrate her 40th wedding anniversary with her lovely husband Hugh, her three daughters are all wonderful and her home in the small Irish town of Kinvara is gorgeous. So far it sounds like a feature in a glossy magazine, where everyone is happy and smiling and the only foreseeable problems ahead involve estimating the exact quantity of canapés for the party guests at Rose's ruby wedding bash. But Cathy Kelly doesn't deal in slick clichés. Her characters, despite their glamorous exteriors, face real emotional dilemmas and heartaches. As Rose says: "It was one thing to look as if your life was perfect, it was another thing for it to be so. Looks could be deceptive."

Cathy Kelly, with great warmth and compassion, begins to reveal the not-so-gilded truth about the four Miller women. Rose is questioning her marriage; her youngest daughter Holly is lacking in self-confidence and stuck in a boring job that stifles her creativity; single parent Stella is a brilliant lawyer and mum, but romance seems to be by-passing her; and Tara has a glowing television career, but her home life is turning out to be far from rosy--her husband seems to be drinking to excess. Over the course of some 500 hundred chatty pages Cathy Kelly reveals the women's secret doubts. Their problems are distressing, but the novel still has that feel-good factor; the author mixes humour with realism and the result is this compelling sixth novel from the bestselling Irish author. --Eithne Farry

Review:

‘The carefully structured narrative culminates in a powerfully insightful and ultimately moving denouement.’ CHOICE

‘Told with Kelly’s trademark warmth and wit, this novel will have you pinned to your deckchair.’ Woman and Home
