Joanna Trollope is a secret pleasure--but she's not going to be a secret for long. She writes sparkling novels of domestic life--the kind of books women readers hoard for vacation, curl up with on a Sunday afternoon, and tell their friends about. She's a #1 bestseller in England, and her legions of fans have begun to create overflow crowds at bookstores around America. Together, Viking and Berkley launch a major new campaign to make Trollope a household name.Trollope writes grown-up books about grown-up people. The Best of Friends is the rich and complex story of Gina and Laurence, friends since their teens but never in love. Now, however, Gina's exquisitely tasteful husband has found his wife and daughter no longer to his liking, and in her loss, Gina turns to her dearest friend for comfort--sending both of their marriages to the brink of betrayal.Trollope understands the complexities and dilemmas of everyday life better than almost anyone. As The Wall Street Journal said, her books are ?readable without being trivial, accessible without being pat, psychologically astute without being labored.' The Best of Friends is an irresistible, must-have book that readers are going to be talking aboutfor a long time.
