Celebrate this delightful fifth novel from Catherine Robertson, who reviews books regularly for the New Zealand Listener & Radio NZ.
Full of delicious, often eccentric characters who live in a small NZ community, this lively, engaging novel is heart-warming & very funny.
Catherine will be joined by Danielle Hawkins, another successful NZ novelist who writes about small, often rural, NZ communities.

After Alexander blends the author’s personal experience of losing a child with her professional understanding of family dynamics and children’s development. It chronicles his life and death, and tells of how the family came to terms with his loss. It is a story of triumph over loss, and of optimism. It offers consolation and hope to parents who have lost a child, comfort to those who fear losing a child, and speaks to anyone who has lost a loved one.
