Love and Punishment


A fast, poignant and funny novel about life, love and a very sharp pair of scissors from Australia's favourite comedienne, Wendy Harmer.


'Love and Punishment' is the deluxe triple chocolate fudge bar of the genre - great flavour, memorable aftertaste and impossible to put down until you've gorged the lot.' Courier Mail

Francie writes the 'Seriously Single' column for the Sunday Press. Nick - the man she thought she'd spend the rest of her life with - has dumped her for an older woman. To say that Francie is annoyed would be a serious understatement. Struggling to deal with the bleak landscape of her new life, Francie signs up for therapy and moves into a shared household with a trio of supposedly swingin' singles. But Francie has a secret. A dirty little secret of nasty revenge. Her nightmare is that one day all will be revealed.

That couldn't happen ... could it?

' ... it's the poignancy and raw, close-to-the-bone writing about having a broken heart that lends depth and humanity to Wendy Harmer's latest novel and makes it such a good one.' - Australian Women's Weekly
