The Land Before Avocado by Richard Glover (2018), Quilt by Debbie Gordon (2024)

This stunning conversation - starting quilt reflects the Land of Avocado, especially in our Glasshouse Mountains.

The book is a journey back into the Australia of the 60's & 70's. Most pages made me LOL - Richard is a brilliant story teller; some pages made me reflect. I was married in 1982 - a very naïve 21 year old. We set up a joint bank account; without a second thought. The book reminded me that in 1980 laws were passed which enabled a woman to open a back account without the permission of her husband or father. The passing of these laws did not make the news, I guess over the next 10 or 20 years we all just found out!

So be kind to your 60 year old girlfriend who never had her own bank account! Remember that was the norm. If you get the opportunity to read his colourful book, I would love to know what memories it brings up as you reflect on the 60's & 70's.

The quilt & book package sells for $320
