Girl Friday – Jane Green

More classic Jane Green in her US incarnation: divorcee mother rebuilds life and soul, finding work as the assistant to a famous reclusive author with sorrows of his own, and with the support of her network of closest girl friends and the obligatory wise old lady cum fairy godmother who lives next door. Then a few new faces appear in town and all is no longer as it seems…

There’s a paragraph about a third of the way in on chick lit being more than frill and froth, which I have a gut feel comes directly from the author’s heart and mind, and which I agree with wholeheartedly.

I do prefer her earlier, London-based, novels though.
