Cover to Cover Ep 08 with Fiona Palmer19 Nov 15

Author Fiona Palmer discusses her latest novel, The Saddler Boys (Penguin, $32.99), with host Meri Fatin.

Our review:   
City girl Natalie arrives in the small town of Lake Biddy to take up her post as a teacher. Leaving behind her glamorous city life, family and boyfriend, she is also harbouring a secret. While there’s plenty of ‘boy-meets-girl’ tension and romance to be enjoyed in The Saddler Boys, Palmer’s latest novel also reads like a love letter to small town, rural WA.  At its heart, this is a book about belonging – to people and to places – and Palmer skilfully evokes life in the small community of Lake Biddy with genuine passion and honesty.  A satisfying rural romance with some underlying grittier issues.
