The wonderful second memoir from Susan Duncan, which picks up where Salvation Creek ended.

About the Author

After a 25-year career spanning radio, newspaper and magazine journalism, including editing two of Australia's top selling women's magazines, THE AUSTRALIAN WOMEN'S WEEKLY and NEW IDEA, SUSAN DUNCAN woke up one morning and chucked in her job. The decision followed the deaths of her husband and brother. After struggling to begin again, she finally found her own patch of paradise on earth only to discover it might already be too late when she was diagnosed with cancer herself. Today Susan lives with her second husband, Bob, on the shores of Pittwater at Tarrangaua, the beautiful home built for poet Dorothea Mackellar in 1925. Susan's bestselling memoir, SALVATION CREEK, won the 2007 Nielsen BookData Booksellers Choice Award and was shortlisted for the prestigious Dobbie Award, part of the Nita B Kibble awards for women writers.

Reviews

Susan Duncan won the 2007 Nielsen Bookdata Booksellers Choice Award for Salvation Creek: An Unexpected Life. Salvation Creek is Duncan's bestselling memoir of love lost, love found and a life renewed in the waterfront community of Pittwater. I finished reading Salvation Creek on a plane sitting next to two burly miners who tried to ignore the tears pouring down my face. So it is with a real pleasure that I turned to Duncan's new memoir, which focuses more on her home, built by the poet Dorothea Mackellar in the 1920s. Reading The House at Salvation Creek is like catching up with an old dear friend over a pot of tea and homemade lemon cake. Duncan's book is for those readers who loved Salvation Creek and want to know what has happened to her life with Bob, her friends and the dogs of Lovett Bay. Duncan's book is also a lesson in living, slowing down, remembering how important friendship is, finding the humour in everyday life and how it's best to always over-cater! The House at Salvation Creek doesn't pack the emotional punches of Duncan's earlier memoir but it made me smile, reflect on my life and it brought a tear to my eye.
