3. Fiona Palmer

This is a story about family, female empowerment and matters of the heart - everything Fiona Palmer fans love about her books. Two families escape the rat race to holiday at a remote coastal retreat, but what lies are they telling themselves and each other?

Sophie Green's bestseller The Shelly Bay Ladies Swimming Circle is set in Australia, 1982. The Man From Snowy River is a box office hit and Paul Hogan is on the TV. In the waters of Shelly Bay, four women find each other. They will survive bluebottle stings and heartbreak; they will laugh so hard they swallow water, and they will plunge their tears into the ocean's salt. They will find solace and companionship and learn that love takes many forms. Most of all, they will cherish their friendship, each and every day. It has all the Aussie nostalgia you're craving!
