Nothing Lasts Forever Paperback
by Maureen Lee
A warm-hearted story of one idyllic summer and four very different women - from the bestselling author of MOTHER OF PEARL. Brodie Logan's seemingly idyllic life with her once-loving husband is suddenly turned upside down - so she moves to a big shared house in Liverpool, and there meets a remarkable group of people. Twenty-five-year-old Diana seems so innocent and childlike, yet she was responsible for raising her three younger brothers.
But suddenly there is no place for her in the only home she has ever known.
Vanessa, once a successful career woman, still can't get over the shock of an unexpected rejection. And Rachel, barely fifteen, with her baby daughter, Poppy, is determined to keep the child some people seem set on taking away from her.
As they while away the brilliant summer under the trees in the lovely garden of the big house, friendships form that will last a lifetime - but there are troubles on the horizon; after all, nothing lasts forever...

Review by LouiseLacy
** spoiler alert ** I didn't think that I would like this book because it is so far removed from anything that Maureen has written before as the novel is set in the present day. However I did enjoy it despite some obvious flaws. I felt the ending was rushed and as Diana was such a central character more emphasis could have been placed on what happened to her. Megan was extremely fond of Diana her grief was told in one line. I would have liked to have known what happened with Vanessa and Reggie, perhaps another book could have been made. I found the whole Charlie plotline a little unbelievable. I didn't really see the point of Maisie's character, she seemed to waltz in, have her baby and then leave. She seemed to be there just to act as a way of Brodie and Colin to seperate. I would have liked to have read more about Megan's trip to Ireland and perhaps Brodie could have gone with her.
