Joanna Trollope's warm, insightful novel stars Eleanor, who, in a chance encounter, invites two young mothers into her home and slowly begins to connect with them and their friends. So begins a Friday night social circle, filled with generosity, warmth and heart. But when one of them meets a man, new issues arise: Can female friendships withstand the jealousies and intricacies of love? Friday Nights opens a window onto six very different women's lives, their passions and their sorrows -- and explores with insight and humanity the shifting currents of friendship.
