Common Lives: An Uncommon Tale of Friendship, Food and Two Very Different Gardens
by Janice Marriott & Virginia Pawsey

Janice Marriott and Virginia Pawsey went to Gisborne Girls’ High together and met again after thirty years at a school reunion. They rekindled their friendship and began writing, discovering in the process a shared passion for gardening and cooking – despite having lived very different lives. In their first book, Common Ground, they wrote about their very different gardens and lives. In their eagerly received second book, Common Table, their wise and witty letters traced a seasonal journey through their kitchens. Now the best of both books is brought together in Common Lives. Their correspondence tells the stories of their lives, their gardens and their kitchens, as well as their loves and their losses. Beautifully written, their letters are funny, poignant, clever and perceptive, as two wise women provide a delightful insight into a wonderful friendship.
