"Seven girls, all starting out in life, make a pact to meet each other when they are twenty-one and compare notes. The book is full of interest, excitement, humour and characterisation.
Gay, a hotel receptionist, copes with many problems including difficult guests, impossible staff, and even a confidence trickster! The adventures of a nurse both in hospital and with rather trying patients in the South of France, the crises in a builder's office, the inevitable ups-and-downs of courtship and marriage, all hold the reader's attention.
Flashes of humour bring the characters alive, and the clear Christian teaching introduced naturally into the story make it good reading."
