Seeking asylum from the wreckage of her life, Yvette Grimm arrives in Australia and overstays her holiday visa. Desperate to carve a life for herself as an illegal British migrant, she invests her hopes in a palm-reader's prophecy: she is to meet the father of her children before she's thirty. But Yvette is already twenty-nine, and the quest takes her on a picaresque journey of self-discovery and transformation. Set in Perth against the backdrop of Australia's migrant history present and past, Nine Months of Summer is a moving, relevant and at times comical story of personal growth, purpose and coming of age. This is the large print edition of Nine Months Of Summer, with a larger font / typeface for easier reading.
