Description

Join us at Hawkesbury Central Library as best-selling author Amanda Hampson chats about her new novel The Yellow Villa.


If you’ve ever dreamed of moving to France or Italy to seek ‘the good life’ you’ll find bestselling author Amanda Hampson’s latest novel, The Yellow Villa, a fascinating and highly entertaining read.

When Mia and Ben trade their inner-city Sydney flat for a five-bedroom villa in South-West France they are befriended by an older British couple; Dominic, a food critic and wine connoisseur, and his wife, Susannah, an actress. Both couples have relocated to escape troubles at home, but soon find their problems intensify and secrets begin to emerge.

Join Amanda Hampson for an entertaining talk about her insights and research in France into the expat life, the flip side of ‘la belle vie’ – and why it’s not all brie and rosé.


Copies of Amanda's book will be available for purchasing and signing on the day. Light refreshments provided.



In 2006, Amanda's best-selling novel The Olive Sisters, was shortlisted for a Victorian Premiers Literary Award.
