by Di Morrissey – Discussion Lead – Karen O’Brien-Hall
Two inspiring journeys. Two unforgettable women. One amazing story.
BROOME, AUSTRALIA, 1893. It’s the wild and passionate heyday of the pearling industry, and when young English bride Olivia Hennessy meets the dashing pearling master, Captain Tyndall, their lives are destined to be linked by the mysterious power of the pearl.
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, 1995 Lily Barton embarks on a search for her family roots which leads her to Broome. But her quest for identity reveals more than she could have ever imagined.
by George R R Martin – Discussion Lead – Vivienne Beddoe
This is the first volume in the hugely popular and highly acclaimed epic fantasy, A Song of Ice and Fire. There is passion here, and misery and charm, grandeur and squalor, tragedy, nobility and courage. Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime; the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.
It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plot, lusts and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men… all will play the Game of Thrones. Winter is coming…
