Friends Like These

Wendy Harmer
NZD $26.99

A sparkling novel about friendship, love, betrayal and money - a modern, witty and wise comedy of manners set among the wealthy elite where a glittering harbour view is the ultimate prize.

Greed, fraud, betrayal and resurrection - this is a search for something to believe in. A search that takes us to a baby-naming, a same-sex wedding and a funeral all performed by Jo Blanchard, newly trained civil celebrant.

Jo - recently single, 45-year-old mother of two - is the former deputy headmistress of Sydney's most exclusive private girls' school - Darling Point Ladies College. A year ago she was forced to abandon her post in a scandal that had all the social set talking. In fact, they're still talking.

Jo is moving on - but with friends like hers, maybe leaving them behind is her only option.
