    Barbara Hannay has written more than 40 books set in rural and outback Australia and has twice won the Romantic Book of the Year award. Her new novel, "Summer of Secret", is a multi-generational romance steeped in mystery and secrets that will pull at readers’ heartstrings. Christine Wells writes about brave, smart women who face extraordinary challenges and draws on her fascination with British and World War Two history. Christine’s new historical novel, "The Juliet Code", is packed full of spies, love, betrayal and secrets. Helene Young’s six novels are inspired by the remote places she and her husband have visited on their sailing adventures. Helene is also a previous winner of the Romantic Book of the Year award. In her new novel, "Return to Roseglen", sibling rivalries and long-held secrets have the power to make or break a family in crisis.

    Books will be available for purchase on the day, or bring your copies from home for Barbara, Christine and Helene to sign.
