An affectionate satire, The Little Boat on Trusting Lane is a story of human connection and the potential of community and friendship to heal. Rashida Murphy, author of The Historian's Daughter, says 'the nutmilk chai latte and hemp brigade have a new champion.' 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 IWEA. While Richard plies his new age wisdom, disciples Finn and August keep the whole enterprise afloat. 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?
Simone Lazaroo said, 'This novel made me laugh, cry and wonder . . . Her characters' problems are both regional and global, their insights hard-won, yet often humorous.'
