20 lucky winners will receive a copy of Hello, Goodbye by Emily Brewin valued at $29.99 each

WIN 1 of 20 copies of the novel Hello, Goodbye by Emily Brewin, thanks to Allen & Unwin.

A profoundly moving story of love during a time of great social change, with an ending that will leave you cheering.

May Callaghan is seventeen years old and on her own. At least that’s how it feels.

Her devoutly religious mother and her gentle but damaged father are fighting, and May’s boyfriend, Sam, has left their rural hometown for Melbourne without so much as a backward glance.

When May lies to her parents and takes the train to visit Sam at his shared house in Carlton, her world opens wide in glorious complexity. She is introduced to his housemates, Clancy, an indigenous university student, and Ruby, a wild bohemian. With their liberal thinking and opposition to the war in Vietnam, they are everything that May’s strict Catholic upbringing should warn her against.

May knows too well the toll that war has taken on her father, and the peace movement in the city has a profound effect on her. For a while, May’s future burns bright. But then it begins to unravel, and something happens to her that will change her life forever.

  • I’d like to travel back in time to the 1950’s so that I could wear those gorgeous feminine fashions and not feel judged for being a terrific stay at home mum.

  • Would not go back too far, mankind was in the hands of the gods.
    Human life meant nothing and only the intelligent and fittest servived.
    Take me to 2060 and show me progress in love and compassion on this planet, otherwise it is all up to our God to sort things out.

  • 1850’s where life was a lot simpler but surviving to your 30’s a challenge!

  • Tough call, I do love lifes luxeries we have now however back to the 1920s and 30s to spend even more time with my grandparents while they were growing up and young, we never get enough time with our older family

  • 1960s, a time of upheaval, change and lots of great hair styles and outfits.

  • I’d like to travel back to the 1940’s. My great Grandmother was living and raising 3 young girls alone after her husband drowned. They survived the war and she sounds amazing, I’d love to meet her.

  • Back t the dark ages

  • The fifites so I could see what my mum was really like as a teenager.

  • I’d love to go way back and see what life was like during the Dinosaur era.

  • Back to the mid to late 1950’s when a whole new movement from traditional life really began to accelerate into a mind blowing decade for a lucky generation

  • I would time travel back to the 1970s because it seemed to be more carefree then with less restrictions.

  • I would love to be part of the 60s…. Peace man!

  • Early 1900s so I could see my grandmother when she was young

  • It would have to be the 60s….my favourite era for music I would have gone to concerts every week. Bliss. The world is still a mess so that’s no different, but music helps me manage

  • The swinging sixties, it looked like a fun time, all those great bands were around, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and The Bee Gees, it would have been great to see them live.
