There’s a randomness and whimsy to this collection, and anyone familiar with Linda, will expect exactly that. It is also represented in the cover art—a zentangle, aptly name ‘Goldfish in the Garden’.Prose begins at a nurses’ reunion where the usual entertainments slip away as Pathfinder Robyn astounds the normally unflappable Marilyn and everyone else with a tale as disjointed as ever was told. A difficult childhood, a fascinating life, related with warmth and received with hilarity. Monica is voted Google-On-Legs for her encyclopaedic knowledge of life’s goings on.A boy learns the beauty of the legacy of his great-uncles. A patient Indian Postmaster goes to great lengths to explain the parcel post system to an insistent customer. Jenny grieves a son on Mother’s Day. Brooks shares memories of a muddy creek, a barbed wire fence and the angst and joys of growing up.Linda steps into a Jane Austen world and is maid at an elegant mansion in leafy upper-crust Sydney’s North Shore and learns the rules for the help haven’t changed much. In spite of his best intentions, an angry man becomes like his brutal father. A top-lofty son is embarrassed by his gentle mother’s dementia and receives a lesson in grace. A vigilante tenant prunes a hedge and the neighbourhood is not amused.Brooks shares her award winning stories: ‘The loud clock’ (Coastlines 6, Southern Cross University), ‘That Madness’ (Legacy University Prize), ‘Anyone but him, God’ (Gabe Reynaud Award), ‘Ancient Grief’ (Grieve, Newcastle Writers Centre), ‘A far place’ (Stringybark Press), ‘Dad’s apprentice’ (Wood, Brick & Stone, Catchfire Press), and ‘The wall is blue (Coastlines 5, Southern Cross University).  3
