The Inaugural Meeting of the Fairvale Ladies Book Club
Sunday 25th June 1978, 10 o'clock
RSVP to Sybil Baxter - ask the operator for 'Fairvale'
In 1978, in Australia's vast and remote Northern Territory, a group of five very different women are searching for a way to connect.
At Fairvale Station, Sybil is missing her absent son, while Kate, Sybil's daughter-in-law is finding it hard to adjust to her new life. In a dusty town, Sallyanne dreams of a life far removed from her troubled marriage. Della, a Texan who came to the country looking for adventure, has encountered challenges she didn't expect. And Rita, far away in Alice Springs, is working hard for the Flying Doctors.
Meeting as the Fairvale Ladies Book Club, these women come together to bond over their favourite stories - and to share a few of their own. In doing so they will form friendships able to overcome incredible distances, weather all seasons and last a lifetime.

Well written book interweaving the stories of several women in the harsh land of Australia’s Northern Territory.
Thoroughly enjoyed the book and engaged with the characters ...slightly spoiled by the narrators inability to speak like a Texan...otherwise she read very well.
