The book

Meet Sally. The daughter of a small town dentist, she's artistic ... she and best friend Chrissie are working on their novels. They adore Cliff Richard and they're on the brink of Discovering Boys.

Meet Tessa, Sally's best friend at and since varsity. Together they iron the curls out of Sally's hair, throw a toga party and go waitressing in the summer holidays. Through good times and bad, their friendship endures.

And Daniel, Tessa's husband. A quiet serious, Sensitive New Age Guy before his time.

This heart-warming, gently ironic novel takes you through the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties. Palmerston North writer Linda Burgess holds a literary mirror up to the baby boom generation. First published in 1994.
