When we were Friends

£2.99

Product description

*An earlier version of this novel was published under the title A SERPENTINE AFFAIR* The addictive new novel from Tina Seskis, author of One Step Too Far. It had always been the six of us. Since we met at university twenty-five years ago, we'd faced everything together. Break-ups and marriages, motherhood and death. We were closer than sisters; the edges of our lives bled into each other. But that was before the night of the reunion. The night of exposed secrets and jagged accusations. The night when everything changed. And then we were five. Praise for When We Were Friends 'There's a poignant air of nostalgia about the sections set in the women's younger day, and you'll warm to the sharply-drawn characters. Astute and witty.' Sunday Mirror 'Clever, intriguing, chilling - and utterly impossible to put down. Tina Seskis is proving herself to be master of the twist' Grazia 'Six friends, one reunion, one gigantic mess. One of the best books to read this April' Red Online 'A chilling tale of university friends 25 years later . . . the tragic fallout of a summer reunion will make you wish you could read that bit faster' Stylist 'One of the world's leading experts at pulling the wool over readers' eyes until the very end' Sophie Hannah 'This dark whodunit explores just how complex friendships can be' Woman Magazine Praise for Tina Seskis 'Taut, compelling... a storming read' The Bookseller Books of the Year 2013 on One Step Too Far 'One Step Too Far is a genius tale with a twist' Stylist 'A whip-smart thriller that keeps you guessing right up until the final shocking twist' Mirror on One Step Too Far

After you have bought your item, our team of volunteers package and dispatch it from the Shop straight to you or your chosen recipient.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
