They were three modern women. They came to Oxford University full of hopes and dreams and would leave forever changed. Helen- shy, quiet and hopelessly in love with Lord Oliver Mortimore, the dazzling, self-destructive blond who lives for fast cars, drink and drugs. Chloe- glamorous and confident, abandoning a high-powered career and broken affair, obeseeively drawn to her philandering English professor. Pansy- stunning heiress and aspiring actress, driven to prove she is more than an irresistable magnet to the men who flock to her. Together for one unforgettable year, they would share a lifetime of emotions and a very special friendship.
