Meet one of our leading rural romance authors Rachael Treasure at Orange City Library on Friday (19th April) at 5.30pm. Rachael knows Orange well because she studied at CSU (then Orange Agricultural College). She is launching her seventh book The
Farmer’s Wife – a sequel to her first bestseller Jillaroo, which has become an iconic work of rural romance fiction. Rachael currently lives in southern rural Tasmania with her two young children and she is passionate about encouraging non-readers to read, inspiring farmers to consider regenerative agricultural practices and animal handlers to better understand their dogs and livestock. The event is supported by Collins Booksellers, Orange. Please call the Library on 6393 8132 to RSVP.
The Farmer’s Wife starts at the Deniliquin Ute Muster which had always been on Rebecca’s wish list, but with the farm and babies, she’d never managed to make it. Tonight, she decided to reclaim herself. After ten years being married to larrikin
Charlie Lewis and living on her beloved property, Waters Meeting, Rebecca is
confronted by a wife’s biggest fear, a mother’s worst nightmare and farm
business that’s bleeding to death. Rebecca’s journey is every woman’s journey
and a resonant tale for our times.
