Author(s): Sheryl McCorry
Sheryl McCorry's memoir Diamonds and Dust was a runaway bestseller in 2007. Now, in Stars over Shiralee, Sheryl brings her story up to date, picking up from the death of her husband Bob McCorry. Having moved from the Kimberley to a property called the Shiralee, Sheryl is rocked by the death of her ex-husband. While continuing to run the Shiralee, Sheryl at first leans on her parents and her children for comfort. But soon, she meets a new man - one who pursues her with ardour and is seemingly a wonderful match for her. Sheryl agrees to marry him, but not before she is diagnosed with breast cancer. Moving, and inspirational, Stars over Shiralee is the million acre cattle queen's surprising memoir of what happened next.
Sheryl McCorry was the first woman in the Kimberley to run two million-acre cattle stations. She now divides her time between the Shiralee and her partner's farm in Kojonup, WA. She has two children.
