AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Do you believe in fate and being in the right place at the right time? In The Girl from Jeparit, meet two young Englishmen and one Australian girl whose destinies collide in ways they never expected.

'Bessy O'Halloran is the girl from Jeparit. Life has sometimes been cruel to Bessy but it is her experiences of the hard times that have made her the compassionate, caring young woman she is today. When fate intervenes at a low point in Bessy's life, this small-town girl finds herself joining Englishmen, Paddo and Tom for an Aussie travelling adventure. Along the way, the three friends share times of laughter, love, sadness and grief in this slow burn rollercoaster of young emotions.

'Author, Carl Spence writes with much tenderness and humour in this coming-of-age tale that explores the journey to adulthood from first-time experiences to an understanding of who we are, what we hold important and what we may want to become.' (Publication summary)
