On arrival, you can expect the air to be fused with the smell of freshly brewed coffee and the dramatic notes of La Traviata playing in the background, depicting a scene from Kirsty’s novel.

ABOUT: The Publisher quotes “The Midsummer Garden lures the reader on an unforgettable culinary and botanical journey.” “From medieval France to contemporary Tasmania, two remarkable women discover their strengths, passions and loves”.  Now living in the Macedon Ranges, Kirsty has travelled many places across the globe, has degrees in literature and communications and has worked as an editor and publishing manager. Kirsty loves cooking with her children, and after many years has finally decided to write her own novel. Reading the many reviews online, there is no doubt that this novel has been very well received.
