      Synopsis

      A love letter to the lives of older women, Whenever You're Ready is a moving and perceptive novel about three women searching for a way forward in the wake of a sudden loss.

      An unexpected death finds Lizzie, Alice and Margot at various crossroads in their lives, torn between looking back and moving on.

      Lizzie is reeling from her discovery of a decades-old secret that changes everything she thought she knew about her friends, her family and her marriage. Alice has always been the good-time girl, as charismatic presenting the weather on television as she is working as a life model. But decades of piecemeal gigs have left her with a rapidly unravelling safety net. Meanwhile, Lizzie's perfectionist daughter Margot is realising that, despite having built herself a faultlessly curated life, she hasn't put her troubled past behind her as neatly as she thought she had.

      Whenever You're Ready is a sweetly wise and gently wistful novel about the secrets and seasons of three intertwined lives.
