Shelley Hansen's debut Australian novel follows the journey of Jennifer Sanderson, recently retired, who receives a business opportunity in an idyllic location on the central coast of New South Wales. Little does she realise how a series of opportune encounters will change the lives of herself and her loved ones. The chance discovery of a book of poems unlocks a story of young love set against the backdrop of Australia in wartime - the aftermath of which will link three generations in a tale of resilience through adversity.

Congratulations Shelley! I enjoyed the story very much. Family history is of special interest to me. Reference to world historical events and timelines instilled life in Australia into the story. Enjoyed your excellent ability with the written word. -

Shelley Hansen has spun an entertaining and moving tale spanning several generations and families, much of it set against the backdrop of the Second World War. I enjoyed it very much. - Stephen, Victoria.

Amazed at how much Australian history and common phrasing you packed in. I gained fresh appreciation for the sonnet form. I kept thinking one was a favourite and then discovered another one. I am completely overwhelmed in admiration of your fine effort. - Janine, Queensland.

I thoroughly enjoyed the story. Found it very relatable and liked the little twists to the story. The Sheoaks also made it feel like you can imagine the location. Well done. - Sue, Queensland.
