The Girls is a New Take on Women's Literature!
By: Bella Osborne
Bella Osborne has written an uplifting book that celebrates female friendships in their 60's 70's, and 80's. What a feat! In this novel, we meet Zara, the famous movie star. Val, the fastidious solicitor. Jackie, a nursing care provider, lives paycheck to paycheck and Pauline, the quiet, mousy introvert struggling to find a purpose. Bella Osborne has written each chapter from a different woman's viewpoint.
The girls met and lived together in the 1970s. Zara has requested that they come and live with her in the South of France. But living together again means overcoming some personality challenges and facing some difficult situations together. Little do they know that Zara has a secret that she has kept from them and the rest of the world. The Girls discover that they are stronger together and those good friendships can stand the test of time. What a remarkable story told through the eyes of an older generation of women.
Thank you to Netgalley and Head of Zeus publishing for this ARC in exchange for my honest opinion.
