AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Cecilia was certain that nothing could ever induce her to attend her high school reunion. Thirty years after leaving St Agnes Ladies College, she's a successful lawyer with no interest in ever seeing her nemesis, Fran, again.

'But when Cecilia's husband shatters her happy world, nothing is certain for Cecilia anymore. With the false bravado accompanying the shock of her relationship breakdown, Cecilia now views the reunion as the perfect opportunity to settle old scores with the schoolgirl bully who had tormented and humiliated her.

'But Cecilia is not the only one confronting demons old and new. Nellie is ill, but that's not the worst of it. Kerry is determined to lose weight once and for all, while Sharon is happily sleeping with a younger man and unhappily placing her mother in a nursing home. Barbara is newly divorced and facing the dating arena after a twenty-year hiatus, and Anne is dealing with the mother-in-law from hell and a tribe of children under her feet... And then there's Fran.

'The women must decide if they will get along, or get even.

'For anyone who's ever had a friend - or an enemy - Getting Even with Fran is a warm, engaging tale of letting go of the past and finding friendship when least expected.' (From the publisher's website.)
