A Hundred Small Lessons
A NovelLarge Print - 2017 | Large print edition
"When Elsie Gormley falls and is forced to leave her Brisbane home of 62 years, Lucy Kiss and her family move in. Lucy and her husband Ben struggle to navigate their transformation from adventurous lovers to new parents and both seek to smooth the rough edges of their present with memories of their past as they try to discover who their future selves might be. But the house has a secret life as well and the rooms seem to share Elsie's memories and moments with Lucy. In her nearby nursing home Elsie revisits the span of her life, the moments she can't bear to let go, the haunts to which she might return. Her memories of wifehood, motherhood, love and death are intertwined with her old house and as the boundary between present and past becomes more porous for her, this seems to manifest in the lives now held inside that house as well."--Publisher's description.
