***THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER***
'A touching celebration of the beauty and endurance of female friendship. There is nothing mightier. Fact.' DAWN FRENCH
The new novel from Ruth Jones, co-creator of Gavin & Stacey and author of the smash-hit, number one bestselling debut, Never Greener.
Friends forever is a difficult promise to keep...
Meet Lana, Judith and Catrin. Best friends since primary school when they swore an oath on a Curly Wurly wrapper that they would always be there for each other, come what may.
After the trip of a lifetime, the three girls are closer than ever. But an unexpected turn of events shakes the foundation of their friendship to its core, leaving their future in doubt - there's simply too much to forgive, let alone forget. An innocent childhood promise they once made now seems impossible to keep . . .
Packed with all the heart and empathy that made Ruth's name as a screenwriter and now author, Us Three is a funny, moving and uplifting novel about life's complications, the power of friendship and how it defines us all.
Prepare to meet characters you'll feel you've known all your life - prepare to meet Us Three.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Not content with becoming a National Treasure for her contributions to television, Gavin & Stacey co-creator Ruth Jones is carving out a very impressive niche as a writer of irresistible fiction. Us Three is Jones’ second novel and an absorbing and deeply affecting love letter to the power of female friendships. Like Never Greener, her debut, Jones draws her characters with the same heart as those in her screenwriting, and we were invested in the lives of Catrin, Judith and Lana from the moment the trio promise lifelong friendship on a Curly Wurly wrapper as children. A shocking chain of events leads to a seismic shift in their relationship and allows Jones to explore love, loss, deceit and dark comedy in a way that shines further light on her gift.
Gentle and Lighthearted
