The Making of Her

Length: 407 pages5 hours


A novel which will speak to women of forty, fifty and upwards as it shows how even strong women can feel vulnerable and unwanted in a society which values youth over wisdom, beauty over experience. The two main characters, best friends since they were teenagers, are Clara, a workaholic, feminist TV producer and Jo, a sad, deserted wife. They come together in a cosmetic make-over programme which will test their beliefs – and their friendship – to the hilt. Pete Street, rock star recluse, blunders into this mesmerising, haunting and very contemporary tale about self-esteem, identity and transformation.
A truly intelligent, incisive page-turner with so much to say about women’s lives – a sharp, satisfying treat of a read!
— Kate Harrison, author of The Secret Shopper novels
