‘Tender, warm-hearted and wise.’ Toni Jordan

‘Each of the women in this novel feels like she could be a friend.’ Sophie Green

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.
