Vintage Island Wife

I’ll be uploading some photos from the old family albums over the coming weeks. Pop back for some fun and potentially embarrassing moments!

One thought on “Vintage Island Wife

  1. Hello! I live in New Zealand and have just obtained “Island Wife” as an Audio Book and am enjoying listening to it. A member of our book club in Orewa has lost the ability to read due to some physical complication, so I will be recommending this audio book to her. I have seen your blog and it is wonderful though I haven’t read it all as sitting still isn’t my forte so to speak. Hence my enjoyment of Audiobooks!

    Q: Will your blog “Island Blog Stories” be published as a book and hopefully as an Audiobook as well? The threads of contact around the world are surely a pathway to healing through sharing.

    Thanks again for all your work and best wishes!
