THE FOUR OF US
In September 1962 four girls meet on their first day at school. Artemis is the daughter of a self-made man. Geraldine is from an upper-class family. Kiki’s father is a doctor and Primmie is a scholarship girl. For seven years they are inseparable, and when they leave school and move into a flat in London 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. Three of the four women have very good reasons 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 they can all make contact again, the results are not at all what she expects.
