*THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER* Fearlessly frank and funny, the debut adult novel from Dawn O'Porter needs to be talked about. COW [n.] /ka / A piece of meat; born to breed; past its sell-by-date; one of the herd. Women don't have to fall into a stereotype. Tara, Cam and Stella are strangers living their own lives as best they can - though when society's screaming you should live life one way, it can be hard to like what you see in the mirror. When an extraordinary event ties invisible bonds of friendship between them, one woman's catastrophe becomes another's inspiration, and a life lesson to all. Sometimes it's ok not to follow the herd. The Cows is a powerful novel about three women - judging each other, but also themselves. In all the noise of modern life, they need to find their own voice.
