The Jacaranda Trail by Alannah FoleyThe JACARANDA TRAIL

A Journey of Discovery
Down Under

Would you just sell everything, ditch your plans
And buy a ticket to the other side of the world?
In her twenties, the author did just that –
And got much more than she could ever have bargained for…

Raised in England of British-Australian parentage, the author sells her possessions and flies to her birthplace in Sydney with no solid plans or timetable in mind.

Discovering by chance that she has another sister, a whole new world opens up: from living on a camel farm and picnicking with kookaburras, to paddock baths, unconventional lifestyles, City Farming and much, much more…

But, before she returns to England, she has one last thing to do: to go in search of her grandmother — the woman who left her daughter to be brought up by cruel nuns in an orphanage…

This book is an easy read, never stops moving and will appeal to a wide range of readers, including lovers of travel writing, family history buffs and those interested in less conventional lifestyles.

“Not so much a how-to of family history research,
as what can happen when the results are in.”
