The gorgeously funny, uplifting and entertaining new novel from Rachael Treasure, author of iconic, bestselling and much-loved stories of Australian rural life, including Jillaroo and The Farmer’s Wife.

Connie Mulligan, daughter of a fourth-generation Tasmanian dairy farmer, feels like she doesn’t belong – anywhere. She’s got big dreams and big ideas, but she made a mess of her university degree and has been sent home in disgrace. The man who was responsible for her failure won’t get out of her nightmares, her father won’t listen to any of her ideas on how to make environmentally positive changes to the way the dairy farm is being run, her mum thinks she should go on anti-depressants, and she keeps having what her psychologist calls ‘episodes’. Connie is stifled, frustrated, out of sorts and out of step – with her family, her town, her community and her time.

It’s not until an opportunity arises to travel to Ireland that a chance encounter – and a knock on the head – helps Connie realise that everything she wants back home is within her grasp. Earthy, funny, truthful and wise, this is Rachael Treasure at her emotional, heartfelt and feelgood best.

Rachael Treasure lives in southern Tasmania with her family. Her first novel, Jillaroo, blazed a trail in the Australian publishing industry for other rural women writers. She has worked as a journalist for Rural Press and ABC Rural Radio. Her dream is to never grow up and to one day live in a shearing shed. Milking Time is her eighth novel.

Rachel will be in conversation with author Danielle Wood at the Afterword Cafe.
