In 1978 the Northern Territory in Australia has begun to self-govern and telephones are not yet a common fixture. Life is hard and people are isolated, but these five women find a way to connect.



Sybil, the matriarch of Fairvale Station, misses her eldest son and is looking for a distraction.


Kate, Sybil's daughter-in-law, is thousands of miles away from home and finding it difficult to adjust to life at Fairvale.

Sallyanne, mother of three, dreams of a life far removed from the dusty town where she lives with her difficult husband.

Rita, Sybil's oldest friend, is living far away in Alice Springs and working for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

And Della, who left Texas for Australia looking for adventure and work on the land, needs some purpose in her life.
Sybil comes up with a way to give them all companionship: they all love to read, and she forms a book club. As these five women bond over their love of books, they form friendships that will last a lifetime.

 Review

Filled with love, companionship and new found friendship, The Inaugural Meeting Of The Fairvale Ladies Book Club is a heartwarming story of different women coming together to help fill the holes in their lives.

Times of despair are made easier with friends, as one of the characters finds out. And others realise that their new friends may indeed be the closest thing they have to family. There are some horrific tales to be heard but as a group the ladies pull together and find a way to shed light into their lives. 

I enjoyed reading this book but it didn't keep me gripped throughout. Despite this fact, the writing style is easy to read without having to concentrate too much. I give The Inaugural Meeting Of The Fairvale Ladies Book Club a four star rating.

The Inaugural Meeting Of The Ladies Book Club is a perfect curl up on a dark, wet evening read which is great for anyone who loves a book filled with happy endings and strong female characters. Plus if the book club feel has got you wanting more, I recommend taking a look at The Reading Group by Della Parker.
