This year The Racing Cafe continued their Author Talk High Tea series on Friday the 29th July 2016. It was a pleasure to host Mary-Rose MacColl giving us an insight to her latest novel Swimming Home. Swimming Home being Mary-Rose's fifth novel is set in London in the mid-1920s, a young Australian and her aunt are each on a journey of self-discovery - one by attempting to swim the English Channel the other to rediscover the woman she used to be.
The cafe was a buzz with everybody there to listen to Mary-Rose talk. Their wasn't an empty seat in the house. Mary-Rose had kindly brought along Anna Torok to participate in the conversations about the book as she had recently completed the swim across the English Channel.
This novel is a must read and once you have started it you will not be able to put it down.
The conversations between Mary-Rose, Anna and the group were very relaxed and enjoyable. We thoroughly enjoy having Author talks here at The Racing Cafe and this one was one of our best ones yet!
Stay tuned next year for more up coming author talks that you will not want to miss.
