SUBJECTFemale Friendship

SYNOPSIS:   Fergus is older than Sheila, in the British Army, and fond of his drink, but he loves her and Sheila doesn't hesitate when he proposes, although their marriage will mean leaving Dublin. In November 1961, Sheila finds herself and her twin baby girls with three other young women on their way to join their husbands stationed in Germany. The young women are plunged into a very different life from the ones they have left. They become friends, sharing their worries, secrets, disappointments, and troubles. Elaine Crowley creates a community bound together by the special intimacy that comes when a group of people is thrown together far away from their homes and families.

Please be aware that older books may have some tanning/foxing to the pages. If the tanning is strong or there is any foxing evident we will mention this in the condition notes above. Older and antique books can also sometimes carry a slight odour due to the age and type of paper used. This odour can be accentuated as our books are stored in protective boxes. These odours usually dissipate once the book has been placed on an open book shelf.
