Description

Meet Janita Cunnington

Janita Cunnington talks about her second book Child of Mine. Spanning three decades, Child of Mine is a deeply resonant novel about a maternal tug-of-love and the little girl caught in the middle.

Child of Mine : It’s January 1974. Maggie Rowe is living in a tiny cottage in Hill Street, Brisbane. Next door lives Donna Birtles, a feckless twenty-something single mum, and her little daughter, Flower. Early one rain-drenched morning at the height of the flood, Donna and Flower seek shelter with Maggie.

Once the water recedes, Donna meets Roddy, a casual worker on the clean-up gang, and starts disappearing for months on end, so Maggie is forced to take on the role of Flower’s guardian. Flower is the daughter Maggie never had, and she’s the daughter Donna had but didn’t want. But when Donna finally returns to reclaim her child, who has the right to be Flower's mother?

Janita Cunnington will be signing books after her talk. Buy a book at the event, or bring your own copy along to be signed.

This event is presented in partnership with Penguin Random House Australia and Dymocks North Lakes
