    Natalie is a young Gold Coast mother with a loving husband, two small children, and a happy lifestyle. While helping her mother move house, she finds a little box containing a Burmese artifact. When Natalie learns its unique history through a letter left by her great-great uncle, it ignites her interest in its origins and her uncle’s unfulfilled plans for this curio. Her investigations collide with her own dramatically changing circumstances and create a dilemma that challenges the core of her marriage as she finds herself immersed in two very different golden lands.

    Penelope says: "Could have been better."
    "A gentle relaxing read"

    Story

    Two branches of the McAllister family lead very different lives on cattle stations in Central Australia. Rob, a stickler for correctness, manages a wealthy, company-owned property while his easygoing brother Sandy struggles to support his wife and son on an impoverished leasehold. When tragedy throws the families together, it ultimately drives them even further apart.

    Louise says: "Enjoyable"
    "Lovely tale of the Australian outback."

    Well narrated and a glimpse into a life in outback Australia.


    What other book might you compare The Waddi Tree to and why?

    It is always good to listen to a story of pioneers.


    What does Humphrey Bower bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Very descriptive story, I love family sagas.

    France, 1152. A beautiful woman is escaping through France, leaving behind two young daughters and a shattered marriage. This woman is Eleanor, Duchess of Aquitaine, and her sole purpose is to marry the man she loves, Henry Plantagenet, a man destined for greatness as King of England. Theirs is a union founded on lust which will create a great empire. It will also create the most notoriously vicious marriage in history.

    Popular historian Alison Weir has crafted best-selling biographies of such prominent icons as King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I. A master at uncovering fascinating and little-known details, Weir brings these historical figures to life with a brilliant blend of entertainment and scholarship. No English queen has drawn more ire than the vilified Queen Isabella. Weir, at long last, delivers the definitive biography of one of the most controversial members of English royalty.

    Stuart says: "Fascinating from first sentence to the very end."
    "Just a history lesson"

    What would have made Queen Isabella better?

    I thought the history would be woven into a story as it was in The Captive Queen.


    What was most disappointing about Alison Weir’s story?

    It was just like a history lesson.
