Author of The Stranding & The Lightkeeper's Wife

Riverbend Books is hosting an exciting author event with International bestselling writer Karen Viggers on Wednesday 6th February at 6.30pm.

Karen will be presenting her long-awaited new novel, The Orchardist's Daughter, a story of freedom, forgiveness and finding the strength to break free.

Like Karen's most popular novel, The Lightkeeper's Wife, The Orchardist's Daughter is also set in the vast rugged mountains of southern Tasmania.

Sixteen-year-old Mikaela has grown up isolated and homeschooled on an apple orchard in southeastern Tasmania until an unexpected event shatters her family. Eighteen months later, she and her older brother Kurt are running a small business in a timber town. Miki longs to make connections and spend more time in her beloved forest, but she is kept a virtual prisoner by Kurt, who leads a secret life of his own.

When Miki meets Leon, another outsider, things slowly begin to change. But the power to stand up for yourself must come from within. And Miki has to fight to uncover the truth of her past and discover her strength and spirit.

Don't miss this very special opportunity to hear from Karen, who was born in Melbourne and raised in the Dandenong Ranges riding horses and writing stories.

Karen went on to study veterinary science at Melbourne University before working in practice for several years. She completed a PhD in wildlife health and since then has worked on a wide range of Australian native animals, including kangaroos. Karen loves landscapes, wild places, people and animals. She is the author of The Stranding (2008), the bestselling The Lightkeeper's Wife (2011) and The Grass Castle (2015).
