Author to talk of river pride

February 23, 2018

Cobram Library will welcome author Darry Fraser on Saturday.

Fraser writes historical and contemporary fiction. Her first book Daughter of the Murray was published in 2016 and uses the majestic Murray River as the backdrop to a story of love and adventure.

Over the years Fraser has written novellas and short stories, as well as the Australis Island eBook series.

Where the Murray River Runs is Fraser’s latest novel and again features the Murray River as a backdrop.

It is the story of Ard O’Rourke and Linley Seymour, who have known each other since childhood. When Linley discovers Ard has fathered a child out of wedlock, this act of betrayal drives them apart. Ard searches for redemption, until he learns Linley is in danger. He races to her rescue, and Linley has a decision to make — can she forgive him and give their love another chance?

This is an adventure story of greed, honour and overwhelming love.

Cobram Library co-ordinator Judy Taylor said it was great to welcome someone of Fraser’s standing to Cobram Library.

‘‘We are very pleased to welcome another great Australian author in Darry Fraser. Her visit follows on from the successful talk by Rachel Treasure last year,’’ Ms Taylor said.

Fraser was born in Melbourne, but has lived in central Australia and currently calls Kangaroo Island home.

Her fascination with the Murray River in the 19th century has resulted in novels that exhibit well-developed characters and multi-layered stories.

Join Fraser at 2pm Saturday as she talks about her books and her love of the Murray River.

Books will be available for purchase on the day.

The talk will be followed by afternoon tea.

To book or for more information, phone Cobram Library co-ordinator Judy Taylor on 1300 374 765 or email [email protected]
