Friday Nights by Joanna Trollope
Friday Nights begins with elderly and childless Eleanor noticing two single mothers outside her home and she invites them to visit. Soon other women join their group and they all get together on Friday nights. They are a diverse group of women - young and old, single and married, with and without children. Joined in friendship, they find their lives made more bearable by the time they spend together. It all starts to unravel when one of the women, a single mother named Paula, falls for a man. This interloper into their lives threatens to undo their Friday nights. Joanna Trollope's novel has received mostly positive reviews with the London Times saying, "There is something extremely reassuring here - and this, no doubt, is what shifts gazillions of Trollope's novels. The final, neat message, that you have to engage with what is around you and go with the flow if you want to live life to the full, may not be earth-shattering, but it is somehow, deep down, what we all want to hear before we step into the messy, scary, real world."
