Can the past show you the way home? Charming and memorable, The Right Place is an Australian novel, combining warm romance with family drama and the longing to fit in. With her dreams of dominating Melbourne's fashion scene in tatters, Nella Martin returned to the last place she wants to be - Torrente Blu, the market garden inherited from her late nonna. When Nella comes across her nonna's cookbook, the garden starts to get under her skin and she starts to wonder if the right place for her has been here all this time. Woven with traditional Italian recipes, told through the eyes of the modern-day hero and heroine and the heroine's Italian grandmother in the 1950s and based on the author's own memories of the market garden on Marion Road where her father grew up, The Right Place is a truly heartfelt story. Listen to Carla Caruso talk about the journey of writing her novel 'in conversation' with fellow local author, Sandy Vaile, over delicious platters, tea & coffee.
