Boroondara Library Service
Elizabeth Jane Corbett’s first novel The tides between will be launched by acclaimed author Alison Goodman.
The tides between is set in the year 1841. On the eve of her departure from London, Bridie Stewart’s mother demands she forget her dead father and prepare for a sensible, adult life in Port Phillip. Desperate to save her childhood memories, fifteen-year-old Bridie is determined to smuggle a notebook filled with her father's fairy-tales to the far side of the world.
When Rhys Bevan, a young storyteller and fellow traveller realises Bridie is hiding something, a magical friendship is born. As they inch towards their destination, Rhys’s past returns to haunt him. The pair take refuge in fairytales, little expecting the trouble it will cause.
Elizabeth Jane Corbett was the winner of the 2009 Bristol Short Story Prize.
Alison Goodman is the author of bestselling books Eon and The dark days club.
