A nonagenarian (who wrote the successful book Sex in Your Seventies) tells of her efforts at gardening after a life of some experience in tilling the soil. She deals with everyday problems and reveals her own solutions. But as she works away, her thoughts wander to her past long life. She talks of her childhood on the dairy farm on the Logan, and remembers her many subsequent adventures, which will keep her readers enthralled as they travel this interesting journey with her. Through it all, there is woven a love story which may, or may not be resolved.


Doreen Wendt-Weir:
From a tiny country school at Logan Village, to the Brisbane Girls Grammar School where she was studying when the war intervened in 1943, Doreen went on to become a trained nurse. When she was 71, Doreen won entry to Griffith University Q, where she obtained her BA, majoring in Creative Writing and Indigenous Studies, followed by a BA Honours degree. Doreen has written two books about her childhood on a dairy farm on the Logan River, Barefoot in Logan Village and Knee Deep in Logan Village. There has only been one about sex, Sex in Your Seventies, but, as a result, she has enough material for several more!
