Apple Island Wife – Slow Living in Tasmania
Era(s): Present day
What happens when you move to five acres in Tasmania on a hunch, with an alpaca-whispering husband and a feral cockerel for company? Can you eat the cockerel for dinner? Or has it got rigour mortis?
Apple Island Wife is her account of what it’s like to up sticks and move your family in search of the good life in a rural idyll. The result is a book that is both laugh-out-loud and a lyrical evocation of the small island state at the bottom of Australia that many still know little about.
“A wonderful non-fiction read. I thoroughly recommend this if you enjoy being transported to another part of the world without leaving your armchair.”
“Warm, funny and inspiring. As someone who has visited and enjoyed Tasmania it made me want to go again. Thoroughly recommended.”
“Memoirs can be a tricky thing. I can honestly say this is one of those times you should take the chance and grab a copy of Apple Island Wife as you won’t be disappointed.”
