Anna has always been exceptionally close to her mother, Kate, and as a child, was captivated by the stories her mother would tell of her childhood in Birmingham with her best friend, Olivia. Olivia and Kate seemed to have a magical friendship. But when Kate dies, she leaves her daughter a final story, one that this time tells the whole truth of her life with Olivia Kemp. As Anna reads, she is shocked to discover how little she really knew about the mother she felt so close to. With Kate's words of caution ringing in her head, she goes in search of the one woman who can answer urgent questions about her mother's life, and about her own... This paperback book has 548 pages and measures: 19.7 x 12.9 x 3.2cm

From the Author:

Perhaps the first thing to say about 'Birmingham Friends' is that is IS the same book as 'Kate and Olivia!' Many apologies to anyone who has bought the same book twice. It was originally published as 'Kate and Olivia,' but my publisher decided it would fit in better with the other books if we re-titled it. This all happened a long while ago but there are still copies of both books about.

The story is one of two friends growing up before and during the Second World War in Birmingham. Olivia is quite a privileged girl, especially by the standards of the time. But the story shows that higher social standing did not necessarily insulate anyone from some of the sad things that could happen to women at that time. I have never forgotten the haunting descriptions I heard from a nurse who had worked in one of the city's mental hospitals just after the war.

As well as being the story of Kate and Olivia and what happened to them, it is also that of Anna, Kate's daughter, after her mother's death in the 1980s.

Book Description:

In desperate times, good friends are there...
