Orange City Library: Scott Honeysett launches Scattered Branches

Sat 20 April at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

12 stories from a family in war and peace

The Honeysett families of the Central West NSW and beyond became part of Australian history when twelve of their sons volunteered for service with the Australian Imperial Force.

From the original Gallipoli landing, to the deserts of Palestine and the Western Front their stories span the duration of Australia’s War. Those who returned to the trials of civilian life carried the silent burden of what they had seen and done.

Shattered Branches by Scott Honeysett offers a frank account of their time away, and for those who returned, their lives back home in twentieth century Australia. Discover 12 lives in war and peace of the Honeysett family including Clarence Mayford Honeysett who rests in Orange Cemetery.

Books will be available for sale ($30 cash only) and signing at the book launch.
