Helene Young, who is touted as Australia’s Nora Roberts, will have you enthralled to the last page in her new novel, Half Moon Bay. Helene lives aboard a catamaran moored near the Great Barrier Reef with her husband and their dog, Zeus. Her work as a senior captain with a major regional airline takes her all over Australia and she draws inspiration for her stories from the communities she visits. She won the Romance Writers of Australia (RWA) Romantic Book of the Year Award in 2011 and 2012. She was also voted most popular romantic suspense author by the Romance Readers of Australia (ARRA) in 2010 and 2011, and shortlisted for the same award in 2012.
The book – Half Moon Bay
Ellie Wilding has been running from her past, but when the residents of Half Moon Bay call for help she knows it’s finally time to return home.
As an international photojournalist, she’s used to violence in war zones, but she’s shocked when it erupts in the sleepy hamlet on the north coast of NSW, threatening all she holds dear. As a storm rages and floodwaters rise, Ellie struggles to save her community. But who can she trust?
Nick Lawson, the dangerously attractive stranger with secrets, or an old friend who has never let her down?
Welcome to the website for Friends of the Barossa Library. We are a group dedicated to assisting the work of the Barossa Library Service, not only by raising funds to improve or update equipment, but by increasing awareness of and access to all forms of literature by all sections of our community. We believe that our civilisation is based on our ability to communicate and record through literature, but we also recognise that our technology is evolving and changing and we must adapt to those changes. Books now are accessible in electronic form as well as the traditional printed form and more and more people, particularly the young, access much of their lives through digital media.
Thus, this website is a way of offering a conduit to news about what we do, and, we hope, encouraging the people of the Barossa to access the wonderful world of literature. We hope that you will bookmark the site address and visit us regularly for news on forthcoming events and what is happening in our Libraries.

Our thanks to Prodos Marinakis, who has been invaluable in getting this website up and running, and has helped so much with the technical aspects.
