The Inaugural Meeting of the Fairvale Ladies Book Club

‘This gorgeous book completely carried me away’ Jenny Ashcroft, author of Island in the East
‘The perfect novel to curl up with on a cosy night in’ Hello
‘An absolute gem of a novel’ Better Reading Australia

You are warmly invited to join the Fairvale Ladies book club . . .

1978. Life in Australia’s vast Northern Territory isn’t always easy. Telephones are not yet common, and the treacherous seasons make even travelling to the next town a struggle. But Sybil Baxter is finding a way to connect . . .

Bringing together her daughter-in-law Kate, who is finding it hard to adjust to married life, and her old friend Rita, often far away working hard for the Flying Doctors, Sybil starts a book club. Joined by Sallyanne, a mother of three with a trouble marriage, and Della, who moved to the country looking for adventure, they come together to bond over their favourite stories.

But as life throws up challenges to each of its members, the club might just provide these five women with what they need more than anything: a friendship capable of overcoming any distance and weathering all seasons.
