Books at Bars - Rachael Johns (SOLD OUT)


After a topsy-turvy year, we are delighted to be hosting the Northern Suburbs book launch for Rachael Johns' latest book Flying the Nest.

We'll be chatting to Rachael in the cosy courtyard of The Ashby Bar and Bistro, so join us for the celebrations with some friends for some drinks, nibbles, author talk & book signing.

Tickets are $9, and include food nibbles + a glass of sparkling on arrival, as a special launch treat. There'll also be a door prize!

The event starts at doors open at 5.30pm, with a 6.20pm start for the in-conversation. Flying the Nest and Rachael's back list will be available for purchase and signing on the night.



They say a change is as good as a holiday...but what if you don't want either?

Is her family's happiness more important than her own?

The first time Ashling Wood realises her marriage is on the rocks is when her husband, Adrian, suggests they try nest parenting. Heartbroken, Ash suddenly finds herself living a double life - one week with her children, the next cohabiting with her happily single sister-in-law. Her friends think the modern custody solution is an exciting opportunity for her to spread her wings, but all Ash wants is her family back together.

An offer to renovate a seaside cottage seems like the perfect distraction for Ash while waiting for Adrian to come to his senses. She's determined to fix her marriage as well as the cottage, but life gets even more complicated when she meets local fisherman Dan Emerson.

Soon, each home-stay becomes more dysfunctional, while for the other week Ash enjoys the peaceful life of the beachside community. The more time Ash spends in Ragged Point, the more she questions what she really wants. Is a sea-change the fresh start she needs to move on?

When tragedy calls Ash back to the city, she's torn between the needs of her family and her future. Can her family life fit in with a permanent move to the beach or could Ash's new-found independence attract Adrian back to the nest?
