Expectation – Anna Hope ★★★★

Blurb; Hannah, Cate and Lissa are young, vibrant and inseparable. Living on the edge of a common in East London, their shared world is ablaze with art and activism, romance and revelry – and the promise of everything to come. They are electric. They are the best of friends.

Ten years on, they are not where they hoped to be. Amidst flailing careers and faltering marriages, each hungers for what the others have. And each wrestles with the same question: what does it take to lead a meaningful life?

My Review; I got this one from my pre-order list and have seen it around a lot. It’s a book 99% of woman can relate to apparantly and I agree. A brilliant read. Eye opening. Truthful. This story has it all. Friendships. Relationships. Romance. Affairs. Motherhood. Careers. Children. IVF. Family. Loss. Fall outs and make ups.

Its all about life, every aspect. The highs and the lows. An enjoyable read. The story is told through each of the three women and it works perfectly. It flicks back to their shared pasts and the present. Towards the end even the future. Beautiful.

A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend.
