Sample Saturday – three from Australian authors

Sample Saturday is when I wade through the eleventy billion samples I have downloaded on my Kindle. I’m slowly chipping away and deciding whether it’s buy or bye.

The Fragments by Toni Jordan

Why I have it: Because I enjoyed Addition.

Summary: Dead 1930s author leaves behind scorched fragments of a second book. Fifty years later, Brisbane bookseller Caddie Walker, is drawn into the mystery surrounding the author’s work and death.

I’m thinking: Yes.

Swimming by Enza Gandolfo

Why I have it: Enjoyed The Bridge and Swimming recommended by Lisa at ANZ Litlovers.

Summary: Kate Wilks is a swimmer, a teacher and a writer, but she has never been a mother. She believes she has a good and satisfying life until a chance encounter with her ex-husband and his daughter.

I’m thinking: Yes.

Elemental by Amanda Curtin

Why I have it: Not sure – it’s been on my Kindle for years!

Summary: Meggie Tulloch writes a story for her granddaughter, Laura. It begins in a place of howling winds and ice floes, a place schooled in keeping secrets. Thirty years after her grandmother’s death, Laura receives her notebooks and discovers the painful past that Meggie spent a lifetime trying to forget.

I’m thinking: Maybe (for when I feel like some historical fiction).

  1. I have heard good things about Fragments. I read Addition but only liked it at about 5 out of 10. So I am not sure whether to take a risk on Fragments. The premise is definitely intriguing.
