We are delighted to announce the release of Christine Hoy’s new book This Other Eden. The historical saga is based on the real history of Christine’s family. The origin of the book came while Christine was researching her genealogy and organising the notes she’d made. Imagining some of the conversations that must have occurred during the significant events Christine had researched, led to the idea of writing a ‘fact-ion’ story based on what she had uncovered.
The book covers a time period from 1802 until the end of the first world war and tells the story of how one family rose from an impoverished agricultural life to become entrepreneurs in London and Australia.
What drew Tale Publishing to the work were the historical setting and ability to capture the lived experience of the time – which is what also intrigued us about her previous book, Secret Sibling. This Other Eden is out now from all major retailers, including Amazon.
