The Camel in the Garden contains three short stories about women facing challenging family situations. Each has previously been published in Woman’s Weekly Fiction Specials, and explores themes of loss, love and family.

The Camel in the Garden
When son Ollie finds a camel in the garden of their new home, Sally doesn’t expect it to lead to romance. But can she manage the conflicting loyalties of being a newly single mum?
