about

Plain, capable Noreen decides she doesn't want to take over the family undertaking business, so she flees to London for fun and adventure, but soon finds herself in a whole lot of trouble. Fashion student Lara's heart is broken after her college soulmate, Matthew, leaves her to join the priesthood. Devastated, she runs to the most "godless" place she can find—King's Road, London, to help her forget. Beautiful Hanna moves to London to evade her wicked stepfather. She builds a new, anonymous life in London, calling herself Annie and meets a photographer who turns her into a supermodel. But all three girls quickly learn that you can escape a place, but you cannot escape your past.
Kate Kerrigan is the author of City of Hope, The Dress, Ellis Island, and Land of Dreams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compelling, beguiling, and undeniably moving! That Girl is an enthralling story about dreams, courage, heartbreak, goals, secrets, adventure, new love, self-discovery, and friendship all set against the backdrop of 1960s London when King's Road was alive and grooving and had more than its fair share of velvet, miniskirts, pubs, gangsters, and violence. There are three main Irish lasses in this novel; Hanna, a young woman running from an abusive past; Lara a hardworking, brokenhearted seamstress; and Noreen a fun-loving gal, looking for a good time. The prose is expressive and effortless. The characterization is spot on with a wonderful cast of characters, including some determined, fearless women who learn through friendship and compassion to let go of the past and embrace the future. And the plot is the perfect blend of heart, humour, hope, surprises, and drama. Overall, I have to say that Kerrigan has done a smashing job on this novel. That Girl is truly a fantastic read with a little bit of everything, suspense, romance, and even a dab of dark comedy and just in case you couldn't tell already, I absolutely loved it!
