The addictive, devastating and nostalgic debut novel about the many ups and downs of lifelong friendship
When Lainey, Margaret, Ji Sun and Alice find themselves sharing a dorm in their freshman year at college, it feels like fate. They are young, transcendent, in love.
As their lives become braided together, both at college and into adulthood as young mothers, their friendships are forced to endure dangerous threats - from the dark forests of their childhood, from each other, and from themselves. For each of them will make a terrible mistake.
A compulsive page-turner of a novel, The Other's Gold is a bittersweet ode to lifelong friendship, and to what it means to forgive another - even when you can't forgive yourself.
