At the age of 22, Noreen Reeves and her husband left the safety and security of in-country Victoria, Australia and embarked on an adventure to the isolation of a Papua New Guinea outstation.  12 years later and armed with an extraordinary collection of memories, the relocated to a vast sheep station in outback Western Australia.

Noreen’s first memoir Two Shakes of a Dead Lamb’s Tail detailed those adventures and now she adds to her recollections, introducing on the journey several short fictional stories that season this memoir with humour, pathos and drama.

From medical emergencies in Vancouver to whale watching in Antarctica, via the excruciating pain of losing her best friend to cancer, Noreen Reeves details a life spent moving forward and one that, in her retirement, she can reflect best on by Looking Through the Rear Window.
