As you escape into Peace, Love and Khaki Socks be prepared: dress comfortably - and for the tropics.

No matter where you are.

The very talented Kim Lock, in her debut novel, will leave you mopping your brow as you swelter in the Darwin heat.

Kim Lock writes beautifully. Each paragraph will transport you, you will feel every breath of wind, smell the frangipanis and hear the cicadas as you follow the endearing Amy Silva on her journey into parenthood. Amy and her partner Dylan are easy to be with…more than that, they are hard to leave. All the Characters in this wonderfully Australian novel become so real as you read that it is an injustice to call them characters.

This novel will have you laughing out loud and bawling unashamedly, this is one of those rare books that stays with you long after you have turned the final page, sighing as you realise it is indeed over.

This is the story of Amy’s unexpected pregnancy journey. As she explores her options and questions the status quo. This book gives insight into the state of the maternity system, and the alternatives that can be found.
