              On 25 March 2020 New Zealand went into lockdown to prevent the spread of the coronavirus Covid-19. For the next five weeks our 'team of five million' endured the unprecedented experience of being required to stay home to save lives. The lockdown was different for everyone - for s...ome it was a reprieve from ordinary life, even a holiday; for others it was a challenging, at times harrowing, experience. Anxiety, boredom, fear, frustration and loneliness became daily companions for many. Anxious Autumn tells just a small part of this nationwide story: how one couple in a provincial city lived through a strange and historic period, when the traffic stopped, the skies cleared of pollution and the natural world reasserted itself.

There she meets Luc Valdes, the other shareholder, who has already formed an opinion of her and be...lieves her to be an uncaring, selfish English woman, who wants to sell the property and leave with money in her pocket. As Lila struggles to work things out with Luc, a secret love story spanning more than 30 years comes to light and she is suddenly forced to confront the truth about the two women who featured so prominently in her life - her mother and her aunt... twins, Lily and Rose. And when her past relationships finally catch up with her, Lila will discover that love comes in many forms but will she recognise true love when she finds it? And can she ever find it in her heart to forgive Lily and Rose?

              Join writer and motorcyclist George Lockyer and hit the road with him as he circumnavigates the wide brown land of Australia on his Kawasaki KLR 650 "Percy". On his ride through the awe-inspiring landscapes of this ancient land George interviews in his laid-back style, a cavalcad...e of colourful characters. From iconic country singer John Williamson and former leader of the opposition DR Brendon Nelson to among others, cattleman, indigenous author, restorer, journalist and multi millionaire Tuna Baron. We also get to hear the stories of fellow travellers, well-met at Roadhouses or "on the road." At times hilarious but often philosophical, thoughtful and instructive, this travelogue is a must for fans of a rattling good read or anyone planning a road trip. "Mired as most of us seem to be in this complex 21st-century world we've created - in the gloopy, clinging mud of domesticity and responsibility, this journey offered another chance to escape into the Never Never. And what better way than in the saddle of a motorcycle? The most precious thing available to us is, of course, time and I'd reached the age where there was far less of it ahead than had gone before and so to quote folk singer Tracy Chapman, 'if not now, then when?'"
