Special Edition: Rachael Johns Book Launch

South Perth Libraries and Dymocks Garden City are delighted to invite you to celebrate the launch of Rachael Johns' new book The Greatest Gift. The evening will start with champagne and some finger food as Rachael mingles with guests. At 6.30pm Perth author Natasha Lester joins Rachael ‘in conversation’ about writing, love in all its forms and the journey to The Greatest Gift.

Poignant and heart-warming The Greatest Gift tells the story of a woman who wants nothing else than to be a mum, and one who never wanted to be a mother.

Radio host Harper Drummond lives for her glamorous career. Every day she meets fascinating people doing extraordinary things, but has begun to wonder whether there’s something more for her out there. She’s financially secure, happily married and loves her job — what more could she want from life? An interview with a childless couple prompts Harper to think about whether she could make a contribution. She and her husband, Samuel, know they don’t want a child in their lives, but could she help someone else become a mother?

The childhood cancer that left Claire Beggs infertile doesn’t matter to her husband, Jasper. He loves her unreservedly, and they are passionate about their thriving hot air balloon business in the Hunter Valley. Despite their contentment, Claire is desperate to have a child — she knows Jasper would be a brilliant father and doesn’t want him to regret choosing her over a family in the years to come. An egg donor seems to be Claire and Jasper’s only chance of a happy family.

Can they find someone who will give them the greatest gift?
Or will it come at a greater cost?

Book sales and signing available on the night.
