The Sheila Stories #028 -- Last Beach Day 

In the final Sheila story, Last Beach Day, the narrator Thomas finally enters the stage on the beach at Cape May.

Well, my friends, as I said in the last episode, we’ve come a long way in the series, all the way from Queensland in 1935 to the present.

I have enjoyed the journey.

I hope you have as well. If so, please share The Sheila Stories with your friends and family. If you know a young girl who could use a guiding light, a story with a mix of adventure and romance, buy her a copy of The Sheila Stories on Amazon.

About the Sheila Stories

If you like historical fiction, World War II novels, adventures that take place in Australia, or a good old-fashioned love story, then The Sheila Stories Podcast is for you.

Here is a quick overview: 

The framework is a classic story within a story:

The outer layer is formed by a widower—Thomas—and his two young daughters, Natalie and April. Thomas is concerned because the girls don’t have a strong female figure in their lives, so he starts telling them the Sheila Stories, a series of adventures involving an Australian woman in the 1930s, '40s, and '50s.

But Sheila is no ordinary woman.

At the age of eighteen, she comes into some money and leaves a comfortable home in Sydney to buy a sheep farm in Queensland.

At that’s just the beginning, for during the course of the stories, Sheila

Befriends aboriginal farm workers.

Learns to shoot a rifle.

Almost drowns.

Fights dingos and a poisonous snake.

Buys a ten thousand acre cattle station.

Dances to big band music in Toowoomba.

Joins the Australian Women’s Army Service in WW II.

Drives an ambulance.

Risks her life to save another.

Helps disabled servicemen.

Marries a soldier.

Moves to America.

Runs a bed and breakfast in Cape May, New Jersey.

Teaches patience to a child.

And opens a surf shop.

  

I invite you to put your cares aside for thirty minutes a week and join me on a great journey.

Strike out to find your fortune at the age of eighteen.

Fight for a worthy cause.

Fall in love.

Experience the heartbreak of loss.

Laugh. Cry. Feel the salt air on your face as you ride your surfboard on the beaches of Sydney.

You'll have the time of your life.
