review 1: I really enjoyed this and it certainly kept me turning the pages. Set in rural Queensland, Audrey and her daughter move to an old homestead inherited from her ex partner. Follows Audrey as she delves into her ex's family and their mysterious past. Very enjoyable with a slight element of the supernatural (nothing too crucial to plot). Only thing I struggled with was the uncovering of the pasts of two different generations of the family (in addition to two generations who moved there). It became a bit convoluted and hard to follow at times, especially as characters appeared in both throughout. Otherwise very enjoyable.
review 2: it is no secret..... Any story about an old house is high on my reading list! This is an amazing debut novel. I read it in two days beca
... moreuse it was impossible to put down. i guess that is why it is on the Aussie 50 Books You Can't Put Down list! I am so captivated by the setting and the sensory journey Anna's story took me on that I am heading to QLD to visit the town that apparently inspired the story. This story is so much more than the back cover blurb. the complexity of the tale that transcends decades will have you guessing all the way to the end. The authors's voice, her characters, her storytelling is fresh and exciting. I loved the first person POV and the clever way the author utilised different storytelling techniques to tell the story. This is an award-winner for sure. I cannot wait for book two. less
