SUNSHINE

COMING MARCH 2019

It’s 1921 and three very different, soul-wounded veterans of the Great War find themselves sharing a finger of farmland along the desert’s edge, and not much else. That is, until Grace Lovelee, a battle-hardened nurse, gets to work on them all with her no-nonsense wisdom. Sunshine is a tale of home, hope and healing, of the power of growing life and love, and discovering that we are each other’s greatest gifts.

LADY BIRD & THE FOX

What happens when a hardworking farm girl and a spoilt rich-boy gambler are mistaken for bushrangers on the road to the goldrush? At a breakneck gallop through wild colonial Australia, Lady Bird & The Fox untangles a tale of true identity and blind bigotry, of two headstrong opposites thrown together by fate, their lives entwined by a quest to get back home – and the irresistible forces of love.
