Product Description

Review

'Real brilliance ... This is a distinguished novel' Independent.

'Just once in a while, a thriller comes along that is so good it takes your breath away. Chris Womersley's second novel does that in a heartbeat' Daily Mail.

'I hammered through Bereft in a day; I didn't want to be away from it' Evie Wyld, author of After the Fire, A Still Small Voice.

'Chris Womersley's novel begins like a classic crime yarn ... But this unusual and rewarding tale quickly develops into something else ... both moving and revealing' Independent on Sunday.

'a timeless, concise telling of an excellent story. It's one of those narrations where every word has been strongly considered, but that's never on show' Bookbag.

'an inspiring read. Womersley's prose is clear, evocative and powerful; an utter joy' The Irish Times.

From the Back Cover

Winner of the 2011 ABIA Literary Fiction Book of the Year and the 2011 Indie Award for Best Novel. Australia, 1919. Quinn Walker returns from the Great War to the New South Wales town of Flint: the birthplace he fled ten years earlier when he was accused of a heinous act. Aware of the townsmen's vow to hang him, Quinn takes to the surrounding hills. Here, deciding upon his plan of action, and questioning just what he has returned for, he meets Sadie Fox. This mysterious girl seems to know, and share, his darkest fear. And, as their bond greatens, Quinn learns what he must do to lay the ghosts of his past, and Sadie's present, to rest.
