From growing up in the Channel Islands post World War II, to running sheep and cattle stations in Australia, Memoirs of a Jersey Girl is the story of a life filled with adventure, achievement, and at times, tragedy.

A near-death accident driving a speeding Porsche in Portugal is the catalyst for Elizabeth's marriage to Ian, which would be the beginning of their journey in a very foreign land. As a young Ten Pound Pom dealing with the hardships of the Australian outback, including drought, isolation and deadly snakes, Elizabeth builds the mental strength and character required to deal with the adversity that ultimately unfolds.

Elizabeth's life transforms to that of a single mother raising four boys, flying solo around the Western Australian outback as a journalist, before relocating her family half way across the country. She is forced to deal with disaster and bankruptcy before eventual successful establishment in Queensland.

This is the engaging story of an incredibly strong woman, whose life is an inspiration to her family and friends.

Elizabeth Kempster hails from the island of Jersey, in the Channel Islands. She comes from generations of farmers and the land is in her blood. After her marriage Elizabeth emigrated to Australia, travelled up the east coast and worked at Fort Constantine, Cloncurry. She and her husband made their way over to Western Australia where they settled on a farm in Boyup Brook, south of Perth. Due to unforeseen circumstances they moved up to the north-east of the state and lived on sheep and cattle stations in Western Australia for many years, where they raised a family of four boys. Elizabeth re-settled with her sons in Queensland in the 1980s and now calls Charters Towers her home. She was inspired to write this memoir to preserve her family history for succeeding generations, in particular her grandchildren, as family connections tend to fade with time. She hopes they will take pride in their heritage, as she does in hers.
