Wow, I am getting nervously excited now! One day to go until HINDSIGHT is released via Escape Publishing. Whoo – hoo! Time for a little snippet from Juliette after she has time travelled back to 1961…
“Umm, this is going to sound really odd,” I say.
“More odd than anything else today?” she smiles.
“Where’s the toilet? It’s not…” where it should be. A bit like me.
“It’s in the backyard Jules, where it’s always been.”
“In the backyard, that’s a good one,” I laugh.
But she’s not laughing. In fact, her expression tells me that she’s serious. Touching my arm, Lily points through the window to a little wooden building in the yard, about the size of a broom cupboard, bordering the back fence, linked to the house by a concrete path.
An outdoor toilet? You’ve got to be kidding!
Humour, wit, and just a touch of humility: the swinging 60s as you’ve never seen them before!
The universe has sent Juliette a sign. She wishes it had been an email instead…
Juliette’s career is on fire, her marriage and family are in melt-down, and a red-hot goddess wants her husband. But those are the least of her worries when she wakes up on her lounge room floor in the year 1961.
Without any of her modern conveniences — nanny, housekeeper, surgically attached mobile phone, designer wardrobe, and intravenous lattes — Juliette is just over fifty years out of her comfort zone. But as she takes on the role of a 1961 housewife, with gritted liberated teeth, she discovers an unexpected truth: slower doesn’t mean boring, at home doesn’t mean dull, and priorities don’t mean sacrifices.
As she finds unexpected friendships, a resuscitated love life, tragedy and triumph, Juliette begins to wonder if she really wants to return home after all.
That means that there is only one day left to pre order at the cheaper price. HINDSIGHT is available at the following etailers or from Escape Publishing,
