An uncommon romance

Milk Fever is released June 2010. Published by Pier 9, Murdoch Books.

In the misnamed town of Lovely, newcomer Julia Heath is struggling to adapt to life in the country, especially when she begins to suspect that her yoga-teacher husband is having an affair with the butcher’s wife.
But Julia soon falls under the spell of Tom, a handsome, if troubled, dairy farmer who experiences the world through extra-ordinary senses. When Julia’s husband sets out to cure Tom’s migraines and memory lapses all three lives become entwined and changed and Julia is forced to heal the wounds of her past and abandon all ideas of the perfect family.
Milk Fever is an uncommon romance. It is a novel of love, yearning, the fragility of modern family and forgiveness. And of how, despite our desire to remain separate, we are all incredibly precious, connected and, ultimately, necessary to each other.

  1. This sounds like a great read! I would LOVE to review it on my review site! Let me know what you think… 🙂

  2. There’s joy in diversity and quirkiness. You have wonderful taste in books btw but you probably knew that already.
    I’ve passed the details onto the publisher as I only have old scribbled upon versions of the manuscript from pre-proofing days.

  3. OK, on the wish list, then scheduled for review on blog, possibly with author interview… 😉
