Laura and Miffy are the best of friends, right up until the moment when Miffy’s father runs off with Laura’s mother. Twenty years on, they’re about to meet again...


This is a funny, touching story about friendship and family. It flits between the 1970s and the present, between Jews and Catholics, and between different perspectives. What is the truth about Laura's feelings for Miffy's brother, Danny? What does Miffy remember about the past? And how much does Evie, Laura's daughter, really know?
