Those Other Women by Nicola Moriarty is about a rivalry that was once fun spiralling out of control.

Different schedules. Different lives. Tensions escalate when an online rivalry between two groups of women – one with children, the other without – spills dangerously into the real world in this firecracker of a novel from the bestselling author of The Fifth Letter.

We spoke with Nicola about motherhood and how this novel might play out in reality. . .

About the author:

Nicola Moriarty lives in Sydney’s northwest with her husband and two small (but remarkably strong-willed) daughters. She is the younger sister of bestselling authors Liane Moriarty and Jaclyn Moriarty. In between various career changes, becoming a mum and studying at Macquarie University, she began to write. Now, she can’t seem to stop.

                  Synopsis

                  Joni, Deb, Eden and Trina try to catch up once a year for a girls' getaway. Careers, husbands and babies have pulled these old high-school friends in different directions, and the closeness they once enjoyed is increasingly elusive. This year, in a bid to revive their intimacy they each share a secret in an anonymous letter. But the revelations are unnerving. Then a fifth letter is discovered, venting long-held grudges and murderous thoughts. But who was the author? And which of the friends should be worried? The Fifth Letter is a searing examination of the bonds of women's friendship groups, the loyalty and honesty they demand, and the pain of ending relationships that once seemed essential but might be outgrown.About the AuthorNicola Moriarty lives in Sydney's northwest with her husband and two small (but remarkably strong-willed) daughters.
