Lyrebird Lake – Emma, by Fiona McArthur

Hello dear “Love Is The Best Medicine” Readers. Waving again from Australia. Wishing you light at the end of challenging times with hope for a new-normal returning to make us all smile. Very soon!

I’m Fi McArthur dropping in with the news of my last Lyrebird Lake series book – EMMA. So, if you’d like to join me for a medical romance set in a small, semi-outback town in Queensland, in Australia, then this is for you.

That’s four Lyrebird Lake books in four months so if you like series, too, they are all out about from today. More coming later in the year. What fun.

But first…a photo towards the mountains from my loungeroom window at the farm. The water from the recent flood rains is still in and it looks so golden in the afternoons. Thought I’d share.

I am here to talk about EMMA. It’s so lovely to revisit favourite characters again, expand their stories, and bring the technology and sensitivity up to date when you republish a book many years later. Emma and Gianni are two of my faves, first published in 2010. The background? Well, when I was still a practising midwife, I used to share antenatal classes with young mums. We had wonderful mornings together. One of the young mums went on to study her degree in welfare and psychology and later joined me as a presenter at the classes. Michelle’s mum had been diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease and like Emma in my story she waited until she was thirty before she found out if she had the gene and since then, has lectured around the world on the impact of HD. So, this story resonated with my absolute admiration of families who deal with debilitating diseases and the heartbreak of HD. I do hope you enjoy Emma and Gianni’s story.

Thinking about the holidays?

Enjoy a virtual visit to Oz. South West Rocks is a small seaside town on the north coast of New South Wales. There’s a wonderful white and blue-edged lighthouse where you can stay in the lighthouse keeper’s cottages. From there you can watch and savour the ocean up and down the coast. It’s great to climb the hill up to the beam of light at night, preferably with bubbles in a wine glass with one or two buddies – so everyone gets their own room to write. I’ve been there with authors Amy Andrews, Kelly Hunter, Bronwyn Jameson, Trish Morey, Jaye Ford and Elle Finlay, so you can see I’m a regular and not loath to enticing friends to share the fun. It gets windy up there sometimes as you can tell from the photos.

Below the lighthouse, a long beach allows four-wheel drive vehicles to navigate along the sand to Hat Head about fourteen kilometres away. Hat Head is another amazing beach haven that’s even smaller than the Rocks and I used to stay there just after Christmas in a tiny caravan with my youngest son for a week. My darling husband much prefers his own bed on the farm.

I’ve driven along the beach with my sons, quite a few times and with them we didn’t get bogged – when I drove, well… I still blush. The beach is incredible with white sand and aqua waves where you often see the fish swimming through the clear walls of water before the wave crashes. You can be on the beach with nobody in sight or there could be other vehicles every five hundred metres. Either way all you can hear is the ocean and the waves. There are rocky islets out to sea, one, Fish Rock, a famous Australian scuba diving point where Chris Hemsworth dropped out to recently. As I said, the view is amazing.

Anyway, back to books, and the beach below the lighthouse. This is where Misty saw the future and an unknown man drowning. Or he very soon would be…

Lyrebird Lake is not near South West Rocks, but my midwives originally came from Coffs Harbour and moved away to Queensland to Lyrebird Lake Maternity. Misty was down at the beach to say goodbye to one of her favourite places before she moved north when “it” happened.
