Posted 19 August 2015 by (Hurstville News)

One of Australia’s bestselling authors of rural historical fiction, Nicole Alexander, will visit Hurstville City Library on 9 September 2015, to talk about her latest novel, Wild Lands.
Mayor of Hurstville, Cr Con Hindi said that this exciting new novel explores bravery, loyalty and impossible love.
“The novel is based in NSW in 1838 when settlers were in search of fertile land, laying claim to territory beyond government jurisdiction,” he said.
“The story follows the journey of Kate Carter, a 17 year- old who accepts a position on a farm, unaware that she is entering a land of outlaws, adventurers and murderous natives.
“Kate soon meets Bronzewing, a young white man who has been raised within an Aboriginal tribe and is fighting to save his adopted civilisation. Together, they quickly discover that beyond their boundaries is a beautiful yet terrifying place.”
Nicole will also be signing copies of her novel at the author talk. The book will also be available for purchase at this event.
