    Sydney, 1926. The residents of the tight-knit Milsons Point community have been thrown into chaos by the building of the harbour bridge. Ellis Gilbey, landlady by day, gardening writer by night, is set to lose everything.

    As her familiar world begins to crumble, so do Ellis’ defences against the the past when she was forced to flee her father’s drought-ravaged farm, and landed in the unlikely care of self-styled theosophist and charismatic orator, Minerva Stranks.

    Ellis is jolted back to the present when wealthy would-be artist Rennie Howarth knocks on her door seeking refuge from her stifling upper-class life. But can Rennie’s flighty plans offer lasting sanctuary? Or will Ellis be cast out once again? As the future looms uncertain, the past stays uncannily in pursuit.

    Evoking the hardships and the glories of 1920s Sydney, this novel tells the little-known story of those who faced upheaval with the coming of the famous bridge. Peopled by misfits, bohemians, charlatans, and fly-by-nighters, The Floating Garden is about shedding secrets, seizing second chances, and finding love amongst the ruins.
