The Brewer’s Tale

by Karen Brooks

It had been Mother’s secret and mine, one passed down through the de Winter women for generations. I would ensure it was kept that way, until I was ready to pass it on. When Anneke Sheldrake is forced to find a way to support her family after her father is lost at sea, she turns to the business by which her mother’s family once prospered: brewing ale.

Armed with her Dutch mother’s recipes and a belief that anything would be better than the life her vindictive cousin has offered her, she makes a deal with her father’s aristocratic employer: Anneke has six months to succeed or not only will she lose the house but her family as well. Through her enterprise and determination, she inadvertently earns herself a deadly enemy.

Threatened and held in contempt by those she once called friends, Anneke nonetheless thrives. But on the tail of success, tragedy follows and those closest to her pay the greatest price for her daring. Ashamed, grieving, and bearing a terrible secret, Anneke flees to London, determined to forge her own destiny. Will she be able to escape her past, and those whose only desire is to see her fail? A compelling insight into the brewer’s craft, the strength of women, and the myriad forms love can take.

Given that it’s freezing cold while I’m writing this, my mind goes straight to the Australian high-country with its towering snow-gums and majestic ranges. There is nothing more special than a picnic in the snow on a still and sunny day with mulled wine and a man to keep you warm. Continue reading

1. Describe the perfect date.
My man and I are in Rome, in a small insignificant looking back street restaurant that’s dripping with history and filled with fascinating locals who come here regularly. We’re eating gnocchi Gorgonzola and drinking vino rosso. Afterwards, we walk back to our hotel along cobblestone streets, past fountains, statues and gardens hidden behind stone walls and we stop in another little café for coffee or limoncello.
In another world, another time… in our favourite city… in love.
