'Australian narrator Rebecca Macauley brings a variety of accents and inflections to a story of an Australian town. Its residents are forced to confront their misconceptions of racism, immigration, and homelessness amid the backdrop of a contentious community garden and a seemingly corrupt local government. With a mix of interwoven storylines, Macaulay's narration has to keep up with characters from all walks of life, and she balances the performances beautifully ... Macaulay keeps listeners fully engaged with the complications until all the pieces fall into place.'

A Home Like Ours is a timely audiobook exploring prejudice and privilege, from bestselling Australian author, Fiona Lowe.

A picturesque small town, a cosy community garden, a facade of tolerance and acceptance – but when three women with wildly different loyalties come together, what secrets and lies will be revealed? Tara Hooper is at breaking point. With two young children, a business in a town struggling under an unexpected crime wave and her husband more interested in his cricket team than their marriage, life is a juggling act. Then, when new neighbours arrive and they are exactly the sort of people the town doesn't want or need, things get worse. Life has taught Helen Demetriou two things: being homeless is terrifying and survival means keeping your cards close to your chest. Having clawed back some stability through her involvement in the community garden, she dares to relax. But as she uncovers some shady goings-on in the council, that stability turns to quicksand. For teenage mother Jade Innes, life can be lonely among the judgement of the town and the frequent absences of her boyfriend. A chance encounter draws her into the endangered community garden where she makes friends for the first time. Glimpsing a different way of life is enticing but its demands are terrifying. Does she even deserve to try? Can such disparate women unite to save the garden and ultimately stop the town from tearing itself apart?
