By Brian McAvera
Three women, all of whom have been friends since schooldays.
Further imagine that each of these three women exists in three separate but parallel universes. In each universe any given woman retains her basic emotional baggage but the circumstances of her life, in terms of job, partner, culture, decisions taken, and so on, will have changed her.
