Mel Hall on 'The Little Boat on Trusting Lane'

Join Western Australian author Mel Hall in conversation with Brooke Dunnell as she discusses her debut novel. 

About The Little Boat on Trusting Lane

Richard runs his alternative healing centre from an old houseboat in a scrapyard on Trusting Lane. The Little Mother Earth Ship provides spiritual sustenance at regular meetings of the Circle of IEWA. But warning letters from the council are piling up down the side of the fridge and the arrival of a new mystic, Celestiaa Davinaa, is about to rock their world. How many alternative healers can one small boat hold before the enterprise capsizes?
