Amanda will be speaking on her latest novel, Sixty Summers.
When three friends left Australia for London in 1978, they all had strong aspirations for themselves and each other. Now they are about to turn sixty and each of them has a growing sense of dissatisfaction with their lives, as well as a feeling that time is running out to fulfil their own expectations.
Amanda’s Sixty Summers is a travel infused novel, full of valuable life lessons, along with a stunning exploration into the many shades of an enduring female friendship circle.
Amanda grew up in rural New Zealand and spent her early twenties travelling, finally settling in Australia in 1979 where she now lives in Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
