An Australian woman’s life of adventure and romance

Thomas is a widower with two young daughters. Concerned that the girls lack a strong female figure in their lives, he starts telling them the Sheila Stories--the adventures of an Australian woman before, during, and after World War II.

But Sheila is no ordinary woman.

At the age of eighteen, she comes into some money and leaves a comfortable home in Sydney to buy a sheep farm in Queensland.

At that’s just the beginning, for during the course of the stories, Sheila

Befriends aboriginal farm workers.

Fights dingoes and a venomous snake.

Buys a ten thousand acre cattle station.

Almost drowns in a flash flood.

Dances to big band music in Toowoomba.

Joins the Australian Women’s Army Service in WW II.

Drives an ambulance.

Risks her life to save another.

Helps disabled servicemen.

Marries a soldier.

Moves to America.

Runs a bed and breakfast in Cape May, New Jersey.

And opens a surf shop.

Put your cares aside and embark on a great journey.

Strike out to find your fortune at the age of eighteen.

Fight for a worthy cause.

Fall in love.

Experience the heartbreak of loss.

Laugh. Cry. Feel the salt air on your face as you ride your surfboard at the beaches of Sydney.

You’ll have the time of your life.

Buy The Sheila Stories today and relive a life of adventure and romance.
