Living on the edge of a common in East London, their shared world is ablaze with art and activism, romance and revelry – and the promise of everything to come. They are electric.

And each wrestles with the same question: what does it take to lead a meaningful life?"--Publisher description
Summary
Love, children, career, modern women are expected to have it all. But what must they sacrifice to win even some of it? Hannah has jumped through every hoop to make her way in the world from her working class beginnings. But will the thing she's worked hardest for stay out of reach forever? Cate has fought against convention all her life, how has she ended up as a small-town stay-at-home mum? Lissa is charismatic, beautiful and avant-garde. She chose the thrill of the theatre over family but will she ever get to be the lead in her own life? ANNA HOPE's fierce and compelling novel of friendship and the pressure to succeed as a woman takes three lifelong friends and asks, what does it really take to make us happy?
