Book Club is BACK!

We’re starting off 2018 with a bang with a Better Reading favourite, The Inaugural Meeting of the Fairvale Ladies by Sophie Green! So many of you mentioned this break over the holidays, we thought what better book to start the new year with?

For those of you that don’t know, this is a warm and emotional novel set in 1978 in the remote corners of the Northern Territory. Here, you live an isolated life – mail takes days to reach you, and you spend most of your time alone on the land. Distance doesn’t stop these five women, though. Each with their own back stories and troubles, the five women find solace and comfort through Fairvale’s very first Book Club. Filled with laughter and books, this novel will warm your heart.

You can read our full review here, and grab a copy here!

The Book Club is streamed live to our Facebook page at 8pm (AEST) on Wednesday 28 February 2018.

Make sure to tune in and bring your questions with you.

                      In 1978 the Northern Territory has begun to self-govern. Cyclone Tracy is a recent memory and telephones not yet a fixture on the cattle stations dominating the rugged outback. Life is hard and people are isolated. But they find ways to connect.
                      Sybil is the matriarch of Fairvale Station, run by her husband, Joe. Their eldest son, Lachlan, was Joe's designated successor but he has left the Territory - for good. It is up to their second son, Ben, to take his brother's place. But that doesn't stop Sybil grieving the absence of her child.With her oldest friend, Rita, now living in Alice Springs and working for the Royal Flying Doctor Service, and Ben's English wife, Kate, finding it difficult to adjust to life at Fairvale, Sybil comes up with a way to give them all companionship and purpose: they all love to read, and she forms a book club.Mother-of-three Sallyanne is invited to join them. Sallyanne dreams of a life far removed from the dusty town of Katherine where she lives with her difficult husband, Mick.Completing the group is Della, who left Texas for Australia looking for adventure and work on the land.About the AuthorSophie Green is an author and publisher who lives in Sydney. She has written several fiction and non-fiction books, some under other names. In her spare time she writes about country music on her blog, Jolene. She fell in love with the Northern Territory the first time she visited and subsequent visits inspired the story in The Inaugural Meeting of the Fairvale Ladies Book Club.
