Shirley Eldridge

How could life in a mining town be this dangerous?

"The sweltering heat of a Central Queensland summer proves to be a moody backdrop to Shirley Eldridge’s story which is part thriller, part psychological study and part story of intense mother-love.
The characters come alive and the relationship that develops between the lead character Cherie and Georgie-Girl is touching and delightful.
‘Georgie-Girl’ is also an interesting insight into the politics and petty jealousies of mining communities and also into the fascinating world of telephone psychological counselling."

Jacquie Mackay, ABC Capricornia
