Class Reunion by Nicola Thorne
A deeply nostalgic story which charts the rites of passage and changing fortunes of three convent school friends, their lives forever influenced by the confines of their Catholicism. Clare is pretty, clever, socially privileged and a conformist. She marries well, is sure to lead a happy life. But does she? Pippa is fey, artistic, and a dreamer. Devout yet unconventional, even though she embraces the religious life she wants to do her own thing in an increasingly tolerant age. But can she? Eleanor, the sceptic, abandons her religon. More ambitious than her two close friends, she becomes a media star. But a fatal mistake at the beginning of her adult life costs her dear. She wants happines, but will it elude her?
