WIN 1 of 20 copies of the novel White Gum Creek by Nicole Hurley-Moore, thanks to Allen & Unwin.

 Nick Langtree has lived reclusively on his farm, Winters Hill, ever since the tragic death of his wife. On the occasional trip into nearby White Gum Creek he keeps to himself and that’s the way he likes it. And though over the last six years the townsfolk have tried to reach out to Nick, he’s pushed them all away.

Whenever Nick comes into the Gumnut Bakery, Natasha Duroz tries to engage him in conversation when she serves him. There’s something about him that intrigues Tash, but she’s not sure if it’s because she feels sorry for him or there’s something more.

At last encouraged by the warmth of a few old and new friends, Nick gradually begins to re-engage with the outside world. Then, suddenly some minor vandalism on his farm escalates and odd things begin to happen on Winters Hill. Is someone out to hurt Nick or have his years of solitude been playing tricks on his mind?

This entrancing novel is about overcoming heartache and loss through the power of friendship and love.

  • There’s nothing like my secret stash of comfy cold red frogs in the back of the fridge away from prying eyes and little hands, cold because the flavour lasts for an eternity.

  • My mums lasagna because it reminds me of my childhood!



  • FruChocs. They say diamonds are a girls best friend but I’ll have a Fruchoc any day!
