9781742753065: The Briny Café

Ettie Brookbank is the heart and soul of Cook's Basin, a sleepy cluster of dazzling blue bays where the only way home is by boat. However, as idyllic as her surroundings are, she is all too aware of the years slipping by without note. While her good friend Sam, an offshorer born and bred, steadfastly guards the tranquillity of Cook's Basin life, Ettie yearns for excitement, a challenge, the chance to live dangerously while her blood still runs hot. But she gave up believing in dreams long ago. Then fate offers her a lifeline - the chance to breathe new life into a beloved local landmark. Ettie's salvation, it seems, is a lopsided little cafe on the water's edge ...

About the Author:

After a 25-year career spanning radio, newspaper, and magazine journalism, including editing two of Australia's top selling women's magazines, The Australian Women's Weekly and New Idea, Susan Duncan woke up one morning and chucked in her job after the deaths of her husband and brother. After struggling to begin again, she finally found her own patch of paradise on earth only to discover it might already be too late when she was diagnosed with cancer herself. Today Susan lives with her second husband, Bob, on the shores of Pittwater at Tarrangaua, the beautiful home built for poet Dorothea Mackellar in 1925. Susan's bestselling memoir, Salvation Creek, won the 2007 Nielsen BookData Booksellers Choice Award and was shortlisted for the prestigious Dobbie Award, part of the Nita B Kibble awards for women writers. She has now turned her hand to fiction, with her first novel The Briny Cafe, set in a fictional Pittwater.

Review:

"You'll fall in love with this gentle, character-filled tale of life on the edge. - Australian Women's Weekly A delightful, refreshing read. - Cheryl Akle, The Circle Susan Duncan has the elusive gift of being able to write in a warm and instantly engaging manner... The Briny Cafe is filled with sympathetic characters who espouse the fine qualities of generosity and loyalty that are necessary to live life in a beautiful idyll." - The Saturday Age
