What happens when you move to five acres in Tasmania with an alpaca whispering husband and a feral cockerel for company? 

Author Fiona Stocker loved Tasmania so much, she moved here and wrote a book about it. Apple Island Wife – Slow Living in Tasmania tells the story of  what it’s like to leave city life and move to five acres. 

“Apple Island Wife is both heart-warming and hilarious. Filled with raw, honest real-life accounts of trying to attain the good life fuelled with a pioneering spirit and a positive attitude. Compulsive reading for anyone who has ever thought they are not living the life they should!” – Steven Lamb, author and presenter River Cottage.
