City Girl


Whatever life holds, friends come first...

Dublin, late-1980s. A beautiful blonde, a quiet brown-eyed girl and a redhead looking for adventure: meet Devlin, Caroline and Maggie.

Their staunch three-way friendship is born while sharing a house in Dublin and, as they each battle through changing times and turbulent love lives, soon becomes the only certainty they have.
Through good times and bad, the bond they share has always been a refuge. And with big life changes on the horizon, the three friends will need each other more than ever . . .

Full of warmth, wit and wisdom, City Girl is a brilliant family drama from a trailblazing author in women's fiction.
