The lost man by Jane Harper - Two brothers who live in a remote town in Queensland own two separated cattle ranches. Cam the third child who runs the homestead dies alone out in the middle of nowhere. Cam ends up dead at his brothers’ feet. The eldest brother Nathan and his son Xander and younger brother Bub Start to wonder if the isolation is at risk of bearing down on them all. The lost man is a gripping and deeply suspenseful story and I recommend it too people how love a bit of mystery. Reviewed by Lilly Rose Smyth-King

Absolutely captivating in how horribly the radium girls were treated.
This reads like true crime because it basically is. One of those un-put-down-able books I finished it in 2 days.

This title was a roller coaster of a read with moments of genuine insight and grace. However the Between the Lines Book Club found the book disjointed and full of studies that were used to support the author's reflections. The group didn't feel that the title reflected what they had anticipated. We look forward to other book club reviews.

A review of Jemima's Surprise
My 6 year old daughter Penelope picked up your book 'Jemima's Surprise' at the library recently and we read it together for the first time today. We live in Mackay too so it's the season for sunbird nests but I thought it was amazing how just last week we've been watching our resident sunbirds make a nest on our washing line. Then yesterday one of the eggs fell out and broke. We also have a hibiscus tree next to the washing line and I often find myself watching these beautiful birds going about their duties.
Thank you for writing such a lovely book that my children can now relate to! I'll be looking to purchase it as a reminder of our own little sunbirds
