From the acclaimed author of Country Girl: A Memoir

Kate and Baba are two ambitious Irish country girls in search of life: romantic Kate seeks love, while pragmatic Baba will take whatever she can get. Together they set out to conquer Dublin and the world. Under the big city's bright lights, they spin their lives into a whirl of comic and touching misadventures, wild flirtations, and reckless passions. But love changes everything. And as their lives take unexpected and separate turns, Baba and Kate must ultimately learn to go it alone.

A beautiful portrait of the pain and joy of youth, the ruin of marriage gone wrong, and the ache of lost friendship and love, this trilogy of Edna O'Brien's remarkable early novels is more than just a harbinger of the stunning and masterly writer she has become.

Wonderful book. Hated to leave Kate and Baba behind. The ups and downs of women's lives captured so faithfully. What an eye for detail and what an ability to write. A great read and one that will stay with me for a long time.
