Sandie Docker in conversation with Claudine Tinellis - Ulladulla Library

Next date: Wednesday, 28 August 2024 | 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM

From the bestselling author of The Wattle Island Book Club comes a deeply moving story about the power of discovering your voice.

Sandie’s sixth book is an empowering and hopeful look at how sometimes owning up to the secrets we tell ourselves can help us to find our way back home.

Set between 1973 and present day, Sandie Docker expertly interweaves the stories of three women to confront the very real issues many face in modern-Australia every day from homelessness to the unhealed scars of historic forced adoption.

About Sandie:

Sandie Docker grew up in Coffs Harbour, and first fell in love with reading when her father introduced her to fantasy books as a teenager.

Now back in Sydney with her husband and daughter, she writes every day.
