The Shifting Light is the work of four friends and members of a Sydney book club, writing under the collective pseudonym Alice Campion. Jenny Crocker is a communications manager who uses her work to create positive change. Jane Richards is a senior editor and journalist at Fairfax Media.

Back in 2015, the four friends embarked on a journey to write a ‘21st Century Thorn Birds’. The result, The Painted Sky, was the first Australian novel to be written by a book club, and has since been published internationally, with 'Alice' appearing at events around the world.
Now Alice Campion is coming to Nowra Library. Come along and listen to her talk about her latest book,The Shifting Light, a riveting rural novel of family intrigue, love and suspense.
