Nene Davies uses the experience of her own family's relocation from Wales to sunny Queensland, Australia, to craft a totally absorbing story of loss, doubt, hope, guilt, confusion and determination. The protagonist, Isobel, as well as having to cope with her husband's reaction to an unexpected redundancy, finds herself slowly and inexplicably sinking under the weight of decisions that should be making her the happiest person on earth. Although this is not her own family's story, it reads as a really true to life account, with exquisite descriptive detail of emotional highs and lows, that has you grasping for the tissue box, and keeps you reading on...and on, till the story concludes. But does it?
Hi - and welcome to my blog! I write women's fiction and short stories. Proud to call myself a Welsh Australian (Waussie!) I live in beautiful Brisbane and write full time.
