Trivia Tidbit: In 2006 Monica was the ambassador for the Australian Government initiative 'Books Alive', with her novella Odd One Out
An enforced period of self-reflection as the Gillespies return to the family property in outback South Australia is testing, but the love Angela has for her family underlies the concerns she voices in her annual 'Hello from the Gillespies', and it is only when that family unit is threatened that the Gillespies fully appreciate their wife, mother, and each other.
This is a lovely, light read, perfect for a relaxing weekend. Enjoy.
