At Home with the Templetons




An entertaining and touching story of the perils and pleasures of love, friendship and family, from one of Australia's most-loved authors

When the Templeton family from England takes up residence in a stately home in country Australia, they set the locals talking – and with good reason. From the outside, the seven Templetons seem so unusual, peculiar even.

No one is more intrigued by the family than their neighbours, single mother Nina Donovan and her young son Tom. Before long, the two families' lives become entwined in unexpected ways, to the delight of Gracie, the youngest of the Templeton daughters.

In the years that follow, the relationships between the Templetons and the two Donovans twist and turn in unpredictable and life-changing directions, until a tragedy tears them all apart. What will it take to bring them together again?

From one of Australia's favourite novelists comes a wonderfully entertaining and touching story of the perils and pleasures of love, friendship and family.
