Event description
Please joins us for an in-person FrankTALK with Amanda Hampson to discuss her next great novel, Lovebirds, at Frankston Library.

About this event

Not all marriages end in happily ever after...

'Skilfully written, with moments of laugh-out-loud humour, Lovebirds both warmed and broke my heart in perfect measure.' Joanna Nell

In their youth, lovebirds Elizabeth and Ray had to fight to be together. Their future was full of promise and, blessed with children and careers, their happiness complete. But a twist of fate changed their lives forever.

Now in her sixties, Elizabeth is desperately lonely. She rarely sees her two adult sons and her closest friend is a talkative budgie. But when her grandson, Zach, gets into trouble with the police, she decides to take him on a road trip to find his grandfather, her lost love Ray, in the hope of mending their broken family.

Two less compatible travelling companions would be hard to find, as they set off on an unlikely adventure into the wilds of the northern NSW hinterland. What they discover along the way, about Ray and each other, has the power to transform them all. In trying to save Zach, Elizabeth might just save herself.

'Warm, witty and wise, Lovebirds is an astute and uplifting novel about the power of love and family. I love that older women are so beautifully portrayed in novels now, and Amanda Hampson leads the way.' Better Reading
