Natalie King’s life is full. Some might say too full. With her teaching job, a farm to run, three grown daughters who have not quite got a handle on things, a reserved husband and a demanding mother-in-law, most days she is too busy to think about whether she is happy. But her life has meaning, doesn’t it? After all, she is the one person everyone depends upon. But when an odd gift from her mother-in-law – an old book in the form of stern and outdated advice for young wives – surfaces again, it brings with it memories she thought she had buried deep. Had this insidious little book exerted some kind of hold over her? Could it be that in her attempts to be a loving wife and mother, she no longer knows who she is? Join Tricia as she discusses her latest novel, <em>The Model Wife</em>.&nbsp;Books will be available for purchase on the day, or bring your copy from home for Tricia to sign.&nbsp;To reserve your place, <a href="https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/meet-tricia-stringer-kenmore-library-tickets-70453922579?aff=ebdssbdestsearch" target="_blank">visit Eventbrite</a> or phone the library.
