About Kylie Taylor

Hi I'm Kylie Taylor. I live on a small property on the outskirts of Perth, Western Australia and enjoy spending my time with family and pottering around the bush we share with our dogs, an ageing horse and a myriad of feathered friends. I am currently undertaking a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in History and Writing, at the Edith Cowan University and work part-time in school administration. When not studying, I enjoy quilting, playing the guitar, reading Tim Winton and listening to good music (Indie folk) on long trips and camping in the North West with my husband and kids. I am a Jesus follower and a grateful one at that, and I'm a huge fan of 'Survivor', the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy, and ice-cream! Thanks for taking the time to get to know a little bit about me.

This story is beautifully written with stunning imagery throughout. Cathleen Sophia's voice goes straight to my heart and the 'Irishisms' of Granny are so authentic! This story is heart-warming; uplifting' nostalgic; funny and sad, all at the same time! I love it.
