The experiential novel
“Goolwa by Breakfast” By Bernard Kelly
Alex Sommerfield is a dynamic entrepreneur, managing agribusiness investment syndicates for clients. His brother-in-law John Letham works Monday to Friday as the clerk for a judge.
Both are typically middle class, striving to provide a comfortable lifestyle for their families, and building a retirement nest-egg through investments.
Alex has a haphazard approach and encounters exhilarating distractions in his business ventures, while John progressively analyses the investment potential of inner city apartments, cluster housing, existing properties, remote locations and negative gearing.
“Goolwa by Breakfast” is a fast paced experiential novel, and the landing in January 1945 by the German U-Boat 862 at Goolwa (south of Adelaide) is critical to the intrigue. Alex has the management contract for a pine plantation at Goolwa, and Japanese and German mafia are particularly interested in the site. But what has U-862 to do with the investment strategies of the brothers-in-law 70 years later?
Author Bernard Kelly has been a writer since his teens and wants all of his investment clients to retire laughing. He enjoys helping people protect what they have, and shows them how to acquire additional financial resources for the 20-25 years of their retirement.
