Haven't you heard? Sixty is the new forty . . . Each month best friends Claudia, Sal, Ella and Laura meet for drinks, celebrating 45 years of friendship. They know each other and their lives inside out. Their ambitions, careers, husbands, lovers, children, hopes, fears, the paths taken and not taken . . .Sal had spent a lifetime building a career as a successful magazine editor but she hadn't banked on the one thing over which she had no control.Claudia loved her urban existence - the thought of the country sent shivers down her spine. But, as many women will know, other people's needs always seem to come first . . .Ella is ready to try something different. But she hadn't bargained on quite such a radical change . . .Laura succumbed to the oldest cliché in the book. But it didn't make it any easier to accept.Outside of the supportive world of their friendships, they find their lives are far from what they expected - the generation that wanted to change the world didn't bargain on getting old.A truthful, provocative, funny and inspiring novel, The Time of their Lives, asks hard questions about what the world offers women as they get older and finds both moving and joyously uplifting answers in the different ways the four friends celebrate their coming of age . . .

About the Author:

Maeve Haran is an Oxford law graduate and former television producer. She started her writing career with the international bestseller, Having It All. Maeve has written nine further contemporary novels and two historical novels. Her books have been translated into 26 languages, two which have been shortlisted for the Romantic Novel of the Year.

Review:

In 1991, Maeve Haran scored a bestseller with Having It All, one of the first novels to acknowledge the problems of juggling a career and motherhood. Here she seems likely to strike a similar chord with the over-60s ... Haran is far too skilled a story-teller for the book to read like an exercise in box-ticking. The characters' own liveliness is reflected in a warm and often funny page-turner that strikes just the right balance between melancholy and defiance James Walton, Readers Digest Maeve Haran,sixty-something and author of the ground breaking 1990s blockbuster Having It All has joined the party with this delightful take on the enduring power of female friendship. If 60 is the new 40 then this is the new chicklit ... a funny, feisty novel The Daily Express, Caroline Jowett Lively Sainsbury's Magazine
