One of our most popular female groups bare their souls for the first time in a powerful memoir.
Four sisters, four very different characters. But they have always been there for each other, through the hard times as well as the good. Now they describe growing up performing from as young as two, what it was like when fame suddenly hit and how it caused rifts in their close-knit family. Linda opens up about her devastation when her beloved husband died just as she was coping with breast cancer. Bernie tells how she suffered through the heartbreak of losing her unborn child and recently faced her own cancer battle, Coleen talks about her marriages and reveals new secrets, and Maureen describes her sadness at the devastating family feud that saw her much loved older sisters fall out with her, Linda, Bernie and Coleen. And they share the joy of getting back on stage for their thirtieth anniversary tour - four survivors who found that age doesn't matter when it comes to having a great time.
In their solo careers, Maureen and Linda have had successful careers in musicals and Bernie has appeared in Brookside and The Bill as well as, most recently, From Pop Star to Opera Star. Coleen is a television presenter, most notably on Loose Women.
