So when her best friends’ lives branch away towards marriage and motherhood, leaving the path they’ve always followed together, she starts to question her choices – because life according to Olive looks a little bit different.

Firstly a big thank you to the publishers for my netgalley copy . Im yet to read any of her non fiction books but i have heard great things.

This is a modern ,relevent and importamt novel about women . The friendships,the relationships,careers,highs and lows. What makes us who we are in todays society?

For anyone who has questioned their place and purpose in the big wide world ,meet Olive.

Olive is brave ,strong and unique. Not afraid to be herself and to ask the questions others wont. Shes outspoken and honest. Something that has got me in trouble myself as a woman.

Warm,witty and hits the spot like a g&t after a long week.

Highly recommend and will make the perfect summer read.

The two families – Pete, his partner Maddie, and Miles and his wife Lucy – agree that, rather than swap the boys back, they’ll try to find a more flexible way to share their children’s lives.

Don and Mimi Galvin seemed to be living the American dream. After World War II, Don’s work with the Air Force brought them to Colorado, where their twelve children perfectly spanned the baby boom: the oldest born in 1945, the youngest in 1965. In those years, there was an established script for a family like the Galvins – aspiration, hard work, upward mobility, domestic harmony – and they worked hard to play their parts. But behind the scenes was a different story: psychological breakdown, sudden shocking violence, hidden abuse. By the mid-1970s, six of the ten Galvin boys, one after the other, were diagnosed as schizophrenic. How could all this happen to one family?

What took place inside the house on Hidden Valley Road was so extraordinary that the Galvins became one of the first families to be studied by the National Institutes of Mental Health. Their story offers a shadow history of the science of schizophrenia, from the era of institutionalization, lobotomy, and the schizophrenogenic mother, to the search for genetic markers for the disease, always amidst profound disagreements about the nature of the illness itself. And unbeknownst to the Galvins, samples of their DNA informed decades of genetic research that continues today, offering paths to treatment, prediction, and even eradication of the disease for future generations.

Firstly thank you to Ana for sending me a copy to review.
