'The Time of Our Lives is a life-affirming story full of humour and warmth, centred around a friendship that is both ageless and timeless. I absolutely loved it. It has made me want to find a senior citizen BFF of my own!' Dani Atkins, bestselling author of Fractured.
'Beautifully written, The Time of Our Lives in an uplifting, feel-good read about loss and friendship and making the absolute best of an unexpected situation. Lydia and Erin are instantly relatable and I was rooting from them from beginning to end. A lovely, well-crafted story that left me smiling and wishing I could stay in Lydia and Erin's world for a little longer' Ella Harper, author of If I Fall.
Two women from two very different generations are brought together through dramatic circumstances and help each other to forge new paths.
Twenty-six-year-old Erin has everything she's ever wanted - a good job, a gorgeous fiancé and a best friend who's always there for her. But suddenly her life comes crashing down around her. Unable to return home to her parents, she takes a room in a house nearby and her life starts over in the most unexpected of ways...
Seventy-six-year-old Lydia, who, shocked by the sudden death of her husband, is devastated to discover that he has left her in crippling debt. With no choice but to take in a lodger, Erin comes into her life. When they find a letter hidden in the attic old secrets come to light and, with Erin by her side, Lydia finds herself going on a trip of a lifetime.

Abby Williams is the pseudonym for Fiona Ford, writer of romantic up-lit and historical fiction. Fiona started out as a freelance journalist for titles such as Grazia, Sunday Mirror and Stylist before realising her passion lay in novels. Now she spends her days immersed in made-up worlds and reckons she has the very best job in the world. When she's not writing, Fiona is a gym nut, but only so it means she can eat lots of cake and drink lots of wine - not necessarily in that order. She lives in Berkshire with her husband and two cats who she sometimes thinks she might love just a little bit more than all the humans she knows. The Time of Our Lives is her first romantic novel and she is now busy scribbling away her second.
