Ros­alind Mor­ri­son talks about: The Cows by Dawn O’porter, pub­lished by Harper Collins, £14.99

No. 1 Magazine - - INTERIORS & LIFESTYLE -

The Cows by Dawn O’porter tells the story of three women who on the face of it seem con­fi­dent and as­sured in their daily lives but, like all of us, have their own in­se­cu­ri­ties kept hid­den to the out­side world. When one truly mor­ti­fy­ing, not so in­no­cent act, throws them all to­gether it shows us that by fac­ing our fears we can over­come just about any­thing. This is a real page turner, as you des­per­ately want to know what is go­ing to hap­pen to them next. It made me think about dif­fer­ent as­pects of my own life, mak­ing me laugh and cry as I re­lated to each of the char­ac­ters and the is­sues they faced. O’porter’s sto­ry­telling is like talk­ing with a friend who makes you feel that you’re not a weirdo but it’s also okay if you are. If I have one crit­i­cism it’s that some of the themes could have been ex­plored more if only to sat­isfy my own thirst for knowl­edge about how to deal with the sub­jects raised. Over­all it was thor­oughly en­joy­able and I wouldn’t hes­i­tate to rec­om­mend it to all my girl­friends. The les­son be­ing ‘Don’t fol­low the herd’.
