You are invited to Parramatta Library on Monday 10th September 2012 1pm – 2pm to hear Fiona McCallum talk about her latest book, Wattle Creek, one of the Get Reading books you can’t put down.
Fiona writes “heart-warming journey of self-discovery stories”. Her first novel Paycheque was released on April 1 2011 and became an ‘instant bestseller’. Her second novel Nowhere Else (released on Dec 1 2011) was an even bigger hit, outselling Paycheque by early January 2012. Fiona’s third novel, Wattle Creek, was released April 1 2012.
The bestselling Australian author of Paycheque and Nowhere Else returns with a story of dreams, expectations and endurance.
Damien McAllister is a man on the brink. Spending long, hard days on a farm he has no affection for, and nights ignoring the criticisms of his mother, Damien can no longer remember what he’s living for. But in a small town like Wattle Creek, there are few people to turn to — and Damien learned long ago to keep his problems to himself.
Until Jacqueline Havelock, a young psychologist escaping her own issues, arrives fresh from the city and makes Damien question everything he has known about himself…also igniting a spark in his lonely heart.
Soon Damien is daring to ask for more than an ordinary life, and can glimpse the possibility of happiness. Will this accidental farmer dare to fulfil the long-forgotten legacy of his father and find peace in the arms of the doctor?
Or will the ghosts of their pasts threaten the fragile new lives they’ve just begun to build?
