Popular author to speak on books
Australian author Tricia Stringer will be speaking about her latest novel Jewel in the North at Nagambie Library on Tuesday at 7 pm.
Ms Stringer has won the hearts of many with her warm, engaging stories of life and people in rural Australia, and has published seven bestselling books, including the historical Heart of the Country and its highly successful follow-up Dust on the Horizon.
Lauded as the voice of Australian storytelling, Ms Stringer has travelled extensively through the country’s vast and changing landscapes.
Her passion for the places and the people she encountered compelled her to write stories reflecting our country’s uniqueness.
Set in 1895, Jewel in the North is a breathtaking historical family saga of love, death and forgiveness and a quest for the ultimate prize.
The Flinders Ranges are a beautiful landscape as Joseph Baker, a pastoralist in that unforgiving environment, knows all too well.
For three generations his family have farmed the land, married and had children at their property at Wildu Creek, but now Joseph finds himself fighting to save not just his friends and family but his very existence.
His son William has his own battles to fight.
As the First World War looms, the two men struggle to survive both the elements and each other, in a deeply satisfying conclusion to the bestselling Flinders Ranges series.
Bookings are required for Ms Stringer’s talk. Phone Nagambie Library on 1300 374 765 by Saturday to book.
