The Early Birds is the touching and funny follow-up to The Future Homemakers of America. ‘Funny, heartwarming and a real treat. I would recommend it to anyone!’ Katie Fforde
‘Wit and insight to match Nick Hornby, and the entertainment value of Helen Fielding’ Independent on The Future Homemakers of America ‘Why is Laurie Graham not carried on people’s shoulders through cheering crowds? Her books are brilliant!’ Marian Keyes Peggy, the southern belle. Kath, the pragmatist with the only Norfolk accent in New York state. Gayle, the preacher with healing hands. Mrs Colonel Audrey Rudman, forever keeping up the standards of the Officers’ Wives Club. Lois, who’s never had a thought she didn’t voice. Loudly.
Their menfolk may be long retired, but once a US Air Force wife, always an Air Force wife, and the bonds of friendship forged in base after military base are still going strong fifty years later.

In this hymn to lifelong female friendship, Peggy soldiers on through new upheavals, including her ex-husband Vern’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis, the death of one of her nearest and dearest, a life-changing house move and the world-shattering events of 9/11 with the help of her sharp-tongued, often eccentric, but always loyal group of friends.
