20 lucky winners will WIN 1 copy of The Other Side of the World by Stephanie Bishop!

Cambridge, 1963. Charlotte is struggling. Her husband, Henry, wants things to be as they were and can’t face the thought of another English winter. A brochure brings him the answer: ‘Australia brings out the best in you’.

Despite wanting to stay in the place that she knows, Charlotte is too worn out to fight. Before she has a chance to realise what it will mean, she is travelling to the other side of the world…

This is a story of melancholy beauty that proves the only thing harder than losing home is trying to find it again.

A stunning emerging Australian writer, Stephanie Bishop’s first novel was The Singing, for which she was named one of the Sydney Morning Herald’s Best Young Australian Novelists. The Singing was also highly commended for the Kathleen Mitchell Award. This, her second novel, was recently shortlisted for the 2014 Australian/Vogel’s Literary Award under the title Dream England.

  • My partner lives in the USA….we’ve been together 5 years…Mel has been out several times and at one stage we even tried to set up house together here in Australia….but she pined for her family and loved ones left behind and eventually she returned…I too was the same with my family here….sometimes it is just too hard to make such sacrifices….I would love to have this book for I’m sure we both would relate to it….I often think the story of our relationship would make a good read too if put to print

  • I love reading books, I read books generally when mr9 goes to bed and it’s my ME time, and to relax. I love reading different books.

  • Reading is a passion of mine. Any excuse to curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and a good book.

  • I think we could all use a bit of insight into how immigrants feel in a foreign land. Even in a place of such opportunity as Australia it’s not as easy as you think.

  • I would love to have insight to such a huge move to change your life as most people couldn’t make that choice.

  • To read any novel would be a novelty for me as it would give me the chance to sit back relax and enjoy a good story.

  • Every time I go overseas my return flight home is the one I love best. I am returning to the place I love.
    Australia has everything any person would love. This book would show me what I do take for granted everyday.

  • This is a perfect winter read, there is nothing like some me time at night time with a good book and hot chocolate.

  • Sounds intriguing

  • to pass the time whilst waiting for baby to be born

  • I know so many people who have moved to the other side of the world, but not really known the facts and feelings that occur before hand.

  • We have a few friends from England who regularly go back to visit relatives and reading this book may give me more insight into have they truly feel about our country Australia and how homesick they must feel at times.

  • I’d love to experience vicariously some of the agony and ecstasy similar to what my English ancestors experienced when they, too, emigrated to Australia!!

  • I’ve moved from England to Australia so I think it would be interesting to read someone elses take on such a journey.

  • I need to find out what it’s like on the other side, it has to be better!

  • The bedside table has been empty since the birth of Paddy (1 months) – time to refill with something great. This would be a good start.

  • Australia is filled with tales of people taking risks, leaving their homes and battling to build new homes here. Stories like this remind me that my neighbours have gone to great lengths to have what I take for granted.

  • Sounds very interesting!

  • This book sounds beautiful and i love supporting Australian writers. Stephanie first novel was The Singing, was amazing, very gripping and i really enjoyed it. I love the storyline and want to fall deeply into the beauty and sadness of the story.

  • I look books all book and would oove to read this book cause its written by a austrLian writer and it sounds intersting
