Books Info:

The Reunion free pdf What happens when a group of forty-something women head away for a weekend together, leaving behind husbands, teenage kids and their mothering chores? It's been a long time since Jo, Helen, Ereka and CJ became friends through a mothers' group, and some new faces have also been invited to their reunion. Over two days of eating and drinking intimacies are shared, marriage and motherhood discussed, and friendships - both old and new - are tested. This insightful memoir - many of the conversations in this book are adaptations of real conversations Joanne has had with her girlfriends or ones she's overheard women having with each other in parks and hunched over shopping trolleys - examines how mothers face new challenges in their lives and change as their children grow up. It celebrates the fierce love between mothers and offspring, exploring what it means to be a good parent, a good friend and a good person - and how all love is ultimately about learning to let go.
