They were three modern women. They came to Oxford University full of hopes and dreams and would leave for ever 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, obsessively drawn to her philandering English professor.
Pansy: heiress and aspiring actress, driven to prove she is more than an irresistible 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 . . .
