About the Book

When Sophie says to Ruth and Jill that all men are bastards, the experience of each tells them that it is true. These three women, separated by age and different experiences, meet in a café and find friendship. They learn to support each other, and when one of them does something brilliant and terrible, cheating the bastards, the others share in the consequences. This is a witty and poignant look at relationships.

About the Author

Roberta Hamilton is a busy Parish Priest in Victoria. After living in regional NSW while she raised her family and taught music, Roberta returned to university and completed degrees in Creative Arts and Arts (Hons 1st class). While undertaking doctoral studies in the UK Roberta found her vocation, abandoned her thesis and returned for Theological studies to the ACT where she also trained for ministry. She has lived in the bush and in cities of all sizes. She and Stephen, her husband of almost 40 years, and her Airedale Drummond are currently enjoying life in the suburbs. Roberta is an avid reader of both theology and fiction. One of her passions is medieval architecture and she spends as much time as she can in the UK visiting churches. She also enjoys playing her recorder, in the time left from her work and her family that includes seven grandchildren. Roberta writes very slowly but always has a project she is working on. She has written a number of novels but this is her first to be published. She is currently working on a novel using her doctoral research.
