THE FINLEY SISTERS' OATH OF ROMANCE
A great reunion story where real life and real-life issues come face to face with the fantasy of high school reunions and the façades that sometimes accompany them. The sisters’ friendships and the influences that they have in one another’s lives make this an enjoyable story.
Finley High School’s 10-year class reunion is approaching for friends who were as close as sisters in high school. Dawn is a single mother living with an abusive boyfriend and working at a modern-day sweatshop. Mona owns a highly successful real estate agency and chews men up and spits them out. Rene is in a pseudo-relationship with a man she is afraid to fall in love with and who she knows is seeing other women. The “sisters” have lost contact with one another and their reunion is the catalyst for renewing and redeeming their close friendship. Along the way they iron out their relationship issues not only with the men in their lives but with each other. (GENESIS/INDIGO, Aug., 390 pp., $6.99)
