Sophie Green has created a world that's as heartwarming, fulfilling and Australian as a lamb roast and full-bodied shiraz.—Australian Women's Weekly
an absolute gem of a novel, with the most evocative sense of place . . . A definite treat for any book club.—Better Reading
This close-knit Australian saga has rightly earned comparisons to THE THORN BIRDS. Green draws out a robust range of emotions as each character struggles with her own set of frustrations and her personal relationship with a tough landscape that's still being tamed.—iBooks Editor
The book club's reading list will remind readers of the power that contemporary fiction can have in people's lives.—Books+Publishing
A plucky group of women gather together to help each other through the tough times . . . This touching tale set in a familiar landscape is an ode to [the author's] love of the place and its people.—Sunday Territorian
I don't want to give too much away, just that this is a fabulous read with a cast of amazing characters that I highly recommend. It is moving and shows so much emotion there were tears and smiles. There is joy and yes there is heartache, but that is to be expected in life, and Ms Green has done it so well. There is an ending that will leave you smiling, seeing characters get their HEA, and leave you with hope for others. I loved this one. Thank you. It is one that will stay with me for a long time to come.—Family Saga blogspot
The power in this [book] is the way gender and race expectations are turned on their head, and the few that act superior based on race or gender, or both, are called out, but the hurt is still there, the scars are still there.—The Book Muse
Recommended for readers that enjoy modern fiction.—Goulburn Library
I loved this book. The characters were well drawn, the descriptions beautifully wrought, and the plot was well-paced. This is a wonderful story of 5 women who are drawn to one another for friendship and books. I laughed and cried and felt like I had made new friends in Australia's North Territory—Netgalley (Librarian)
provides vivid descriptions of both the triumphs and hardships of life in the outback so readers can empathise with all the joys and heartaches experienced by each one.—Starts at Sixty
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and would recommend it to others as it does not end when the last page is read since the reader is inspired to find out more about the other books mentioned and some of the news items alluded to in its pages.—Queensland Reviewers Collective
An emotional and satisfying read, I'd be delighted to belong to the Fairvale Ladies Book Club!—The Book Date
Audiobook review and paperback giveaway.—Australian Country
beautifully written with excellent language usage and imagery—Netgalley
Sophie Green has written a book that is so descriptive you can almost picture everything as you read the words. A definite 5* read and one I thoroughly recommend—Goodreads
This is an absolutely delightful read. As we meet the five main female characters, we feel like we've made new friends—chicklitclub Blog
I honestly loved this book and I think everyone should read it. The setting was amazing, the writing was beautiful and the characters were real and relatable. If you are looking for a book that will captivate you and transport you to another time and place, Fairvale Ladies Book Club is the book for you.—Gem's Book Nook (blog)
heartwarming novel is set primarily at Fairvale Station in the Northern Territory in the late 1970s.—City Messanger
Green takes each of the women in the story on a journey. Each has their own (but intertwined) story arc and - although most end happily - not all do and we're reminded that life takes unexpected turns.—
