Product Description

Even a good woman can be pushed too far...

From bestselling author Tricia Stringer, this beautifully realised multi-generational family story looks at what happens when real-life betrayals and struggling relationships clash with outdated ideas of what a woman should be.


Natalie King's life is full. Some might say too full. With her teaching job, a farm to run, three grown daughters who have not quite got a handle on things, a reserved husband and a demanding mother-in-law, most days she is too busy to think about whether she is happy. But her life has meaning, doesn't it? After all, she is the one person everyone depends upon.

But when an odd gift from her mother-in-law - an old book in the form of stern and outdated advice for young wives - surfaces again, it brings with it memories she thought she had buried deep. Has this insidious little book exerted some kind of hold over her? Could it be that in her attempts to be a loving wife and mother, she no longer knows who she is?

On a day when it seems everyone is taking her for granted, and as the ghost of a past betrayal rises, it becomes clear that even this good mother and model wife can be pushed too far ...

Tricia Stringer

About the Author


Tricia Stringer grew up on a farm in country South Australia and has spent most of her life in rural communities. She is the mother of three talented children and their partners and is lucky enough to be a nanna. 


Tricia has spent many years in education as a teacher, a librarian and an IT coordinator, owned a post office and bookshop and worked part-time in another bookshop – stories have been a part of her life for as long as she can remember. It was a yearning to write stories to bring local history alive for children that started Tricia on the journey to develop her writing skills and begin to write for younger readers, a path that led to writing adult stories. 

Tricia is now the bestselling author of several rural romances and her historical saga set in South Australia’s Flinders Ranges. Queen of the Road won the Romance Writers of Australia Romantic Book of the Year award in 2013. Riverboat Point was shortlisted for the same award in 2015 and Between the Vines in 2016. Table for Eight is the first of her women’s fiction titles – delving into life experiences, our relationships with family and friends, and what makes us the people we are, is a topic she finds delicious. 

Tricia and her husband, Daryl, currently live in the beautiful Copper Coast region. She loves to walk on the beach and travel to and across Australia’s vast array of communities and landscapes as well as to overseas destinations. A sense of place in her stories is very important. There’s always another tale to be written…she’s working on her next manuscript as you read this.
