Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Community News -

Wil­ber­force au­thor Dor Slinkard is set to pub­lish her de­but book at the end of this month; For the Love of Pa­trick is a ro­mance story that fol­lows two cou­ples in 1892 as they bat­tle the war that is life as they cling onto the hope of true love.

A daugh­ter of a con­vict, Sally Smith flees to Ade­laide emo­tion­ally and phys­i­cally drained. Her life is one she’s ashamed of and one that causes her great sad­ness. How­ever, a chance en­counter brings a new per­son into her life, a shy lawyer. Her hopes of a re­la­tion­ship are over­shad­owed by the se­cret of her past. If re­vealed, she’s sure it will shat­ter the il­lu­sion of love and drain her of her hap­pi­ness once more.

The pas­sion­ate Ber­nadette is a sup­porter of the suf­fragettes and women’s rights finds her equal. As ro­mance blooms, fate plays its cruel hand.

Im­merse your­self in a sweep­ing tale of hope and love as the char­ac­ters you adore, fol­low the jour­ney of th­ese two cou­ple as you pray they find hap­pi­ness. With the turn of the cen­tury on the doorsteps, and the First World War already mak­ing its way over the horizon, be­come ob­sessed with Dor Slinkard’s beau­ti­ful, emo­tional, and fast-mov­ing story.

With se­crets, un­tapped de­sire and un­bri­dled am­bi­tion, For the Love of Pa­trick is a ro­man­tic ride through a fas­ci­nat­ing time.

Dor Slinkard is an un­stop­pable sto­ry­teller, en­thralling friends and fam­ily when­ever she can. In­spired from her life as a jil­la­roo in the out­back and as a race horse trainer, her imag­i­na­tion has no lim­its. Much like her char­ac­ters, she has found her true love with Wade and have two chil­dren and five grand­chil­dren.

For the Love of Pa­trick, pub­lished by Austin Ma­cauley, is now avail­able to pur­chase from 31st Au­gust 2017. For more in­for­ma­tion, please visit www.austin­
