Birthright author speaking at Bright
AWARD-WINNING author Fiona Lowe will be speaking about her latest novel ‘Birthright’ at the Bright library next week.
While most authors generally visit all three of Alpine Shire libraries time constraints have forced Ms Lowe to limit herself to just Bright and readers from Mt Beauty and Myrtleford are encouraged to attend.
Ms Lowe’s most recent work is set in Victoria’s high country, and tells the story of a tightfisted matriarch, a conflicted family and an inheritance with strings attached, making for an intense story of the relationships between siblings, and of deceit, betrayal and revenge.
Fiona Lowe has been a midwife, a sexual health counsellor and a family support worker which has given her the knowledge to write novels about family and relationships.
Ms Lowe is a recipient of the prestigious USA RITA award and the Australian RUBY award, both recognising success in romantic fiction, and sets her books in small country towns, featuring real people facing difficult choices and exploring how family ties and relationships impact our decisions.
“Families are only ever one event away from imploding, and I started to ponder the question of inheritance,” Ms Lowe said.
“Where there’s a will there’s a relative is a well- known phrase which really is at the centre of ‘Birthright’.
Fiona Lowe will be at the Bright library on Thursday, March at 2pm.
Those wishing to attend are strongly advised to book by calling the library on (03) 5755 1540.
