    Talking Aussie Books with Leah Swann

    Talking Aussie Books with Leah Swann

    Leah Swann's debut adult fiction novel "Sheerwater" has got to be one of the most emotional, compelling, kick-in-the-guts novels I have read in a while. A book that explores the lengths a mother will go to protect her children. A high-stakes story that delves in the psyche of fear. Oh my!

    If you read only one book this year . . .make it this one. It had me gripped from start to finish.

    Join Leah and I as we talk about her inspiration for writing this novel, her writing process, and much more.

    A fabulous chat with the author of what I'm sure is going to be one of the most talked-about books of the year.

    Jennifer McKenzie Dunbar is an Adelaide based author whose debut novel "Vivaldi's Lost Concerto" is a surprising and fascinating exploration of love, music, of what it means to be marginalised as well as the power of friendship.
    With dual timelines spotlighting 21st century Australia alongside 18th century Scotland and Italy, it's an epic story inspired by true historical events.
    I loved reading this book and learnt a great deal in the process.

    Sarah Clutton is a lawyer turned author who writes novels best described as a mixture of mystery, family secrets and drama. Her first novel "Good Little Liars" released last year was a runaway success. Emotionally gripping and filled with a cast of nuanced characters, the success of this debut was unsurprising. This year, Sarah is back with a brand new novel. "The Daughter's Promise" is another drama with a deep, dark secret at its heart and which delivers another page-turning read. I loved it.
