Summary (From the publisher):

One night in 1986 an abandoned baby girl is found in a cleaning cupboard at Heathrow airport. A year earlier, three girls, Martha, Clio and Jocasta, had met by chance, at the start of a backpacking adventure: they travelled together briefly and then separated to go their different ways, swearing to meet again when they return home.

But it would be a long time before they met again: not until Kate, the foundling, is a teenager, and the three women are all leading successful lives. Martha is a fiercely single, highly paid corporate lawyer, Clio a doctor, locked in an unhappy marriage to a surgeon, and Jocasta a reporter for a tabloid newspaper, in love with a charming commitment-phobe.

Which of them is Kate's mother? Why was she desperate enough to do such a thing, and how did she survive it?

Kate, adopted by a loving family, is desperate to find her birth mother. Engagingly stroppy, ferociously independent, with no clues to follow and against a great deal of kindly and well-meaning advice, she refuses absolutely to give in. Gradually the four lives are drawn together. Jocasta, Martha and Clio rediscover one another and their friendship and against considerable odds Kate finds what she thinks she wants.
