Continuing the story of Susan Duncan's bestselling memoir, Salvation Creek, The House picks up after Bob and Susan marry and, two years later, move from her Tin Shed into his pale yellow house on the high, rough hill , Tarrangaua, built for the iconic Australian poet, Dorothea Mackellar. Set against the backdrop of the small, close-knit Pittwater community with its colourful characters and quirky history, The House is about what happens when you open the door to life, adventure, and love. But it's also about mothers and daughters, as Susan confronts her mother's new frailty and her own role in what has always been a difficult relationship. Where Salvation Creek was about mortality - living life in the face of death - The House is about stepping outside your comfort zone and embracing challenges, at any age. In turn funny and moving, Susan Duncan's beautifully written sequel reminds us to hour what matters in life, and to disregard what really doesn't.
