Author Event - Libraries After Dark - Leonie Kelsall, The Wattle Seed Inn - Portland Library
Join Glenelg Libraries as Australian rural romance author Leonie Kelsall launches her newest novel The Wattle Seed Inn featuring three aching hearts, a ramshackle country pub and a tangled web of secrets.

PR executive Gabrielle knows she has an easy life, but when her business partner claims she lacks career passion she takes ownership of a dilapidated pub in a tiny riverside settlement to prove she can be a success without falling back on her privilege.

Eighteen months ago, Settlers Bridge stonemason Hayden had it all: a job he loved, good mates and a close family.

Living at Wurruldi Hotel for goodness, so many years, Ilse has seen more changes of ownership than she can recall. Clinging to her failing memories, she's tired of trying to protect the property her grandparents built.

For Ilse to find peace, Hayden forgiveness and Gabrielle her true passion, three aching hearts must reveal their secrets.

Leonie grew up in the South Australian country - initially on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula in a tiny town where the school had a total enrolment of only eleven students, and later on a farm near the stunning Murray River. Her first novel The Farm at Peppertree Crossing was published in 2020 to wonderful reviews.

She now finds herself dividing her time between her professional counselling practice in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, and her childhood farm, which provides the setting for many of her stories.
