Cathy Kelly's Someone Like You is the uplifting tale of three thirtysomething women who meet on holiday in Egypt and become close friends. Emma, Leonie and Hannah are all at different stages in their lives but have one thing in common--each one is waiting for that final jigsaw piece to slot into place, the elusive thing that will make them truly happy. Newly married Emma yearns for a baby. Feeling "infertile, barren, hopeless and useless as a woman", she also has to deal with a domineering father who still treats her like a child. Veterinary nurse Leonie is on the hunt for a man "who lives life with passion and vigour", and will give her all the things that were missing from her 10-year marriage. Hannah has been on a mission to become an independent woman ever since Harry walked out and decided that a "year-long trek around South America" was more important than their relationship.
As their stories develop, we witness the three women growing to lean on each other as they strive to fulfil their dreams. Friendship is a pivotal theme and Kelly, author of She's the One and Never Too Late, uses the growing bond between these women to reveal their innermost thoughts and secrets, creating fully realised, three-dimensional characters. This is evident as Emma plunges deeper into depression, realising that she may not be able to conceive: "... the pain hit her again. The pain of knowing that there had been no baby growing safely inside her, wrapped in fierce love and protected from the world by Emma's body ... She heard a noise and realised that it was herself, crying, keening like a woman at a funeral". Fans of Cathy Kelly will undoubtedly relish this modern tale of love and friendship. --Amy Gallagher -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
