Join author Monica McInerney Thursday 8 October at 7.30pm on Sunshine Coast Libraries Facebook page to hear about her new book The Godmothers. South East Qld Libraries have partnered with Penguin Books Australia for a fab night in on the lounge with a storytelling legend.
Set in Australia, Scotland, Ireland and England, The Godmothers is a great big hug of a book that will fill your heart to bursting. It is a moving and perceptive story about love, lies, hope and sorrow, about the families we are born into and the families we make for ourselves.
Eliza Miller grew up in Australia as the only daughter of a troubled young mother, but with the support of two watchful godmothers, Olivia and Maxie. Despite her tricky childhood, she always felt loved and secure. Until, just before her eighteenth birthday, a tragic event changed her life. Thirteen years on, Eliza is deliberately living as safely as possible, avoiding close relationships and devoting herself to her job.
Monica McInerney is one of the stars of Australian fiction. She is the author of the internationally bestselling novels A Taste for It, Upside Down Inside Out, Spin the Bottle, The Alphabet Sisters, Family Baggage, Those Faraday Girls, At Home with the Templetons, Lola’s Secret, The House of Memories, The Trip of a Lifetime and a short story collection, All Together Now. Those Faraday Girls was the winner of the General Fiction Book of the Year prize at the 2008 Australian Book Industry Awards. Monica and her Irish husband live in Dublin.
