Event Launch: Rae Cairns, author of the Good Mother

June 30, 2022 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Everyone is welcome to attend a Robinsons The Glen author event – Sydney author (and Sisters’ member) Rae Cairns will be ‘in conversation’ with Melbourne author (and Sisters’ member) Lyn Yeowart about her debut novel, The Good Mother (HarperCollins).

The Good Mother was shortlisted for the 2021 Ned Kelly Award for Best Debut Crime Fiction:

“She’s protected them from the truth. Can she save them from her past? Sarah Calhoun is a regular Sydney soccer mum, but she’s keeping terrifying secrets from everyone she loves . . . and her past is about to catch up with her.

“When two men from Northern Ireland hunt her down, she’s forced to return to Belfast to testify at a murder trial. Caught in the crossfire of an obsessive policeman driven by a disturbing past, and a brutal IRA executioner, Sarah faces an impossible choice: lie and allow a killer to walk free, or tell the truth and place her children in the line of fire.

“With her family and innocent people at risk, Sarah must find the courage to fight for the truth. But righting the wrongs of the past just might cost her everything …”

This fast-paced, explosive thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat to its gripping finale.

Food and drinks available at bar prices. $200 hamper of books up for grabs.

This event is FREE to attend but please book. Rae will be available to answer all your questions, and there will also be the opportunity for book signings!

Lyn Yeowart is the author of The Silent Listener which won the Indie Book Award for Debut Fiction in February.
