Description of this Book

'This is a masterful novel...readers who loved Goodwood will find even more to love here.' Books + Publishing on Cedar Valley 'So much truth, so much aching and pain by humour. What a wonderful book. I can see the Australian novelist continuum from Patrick White and Thea Astley in her explicit representation of the character of Australians in regional towns. Others have compared Throsby with Tim Winton. I hope she is writing another book.' Lindy Morrison in LoudMouth on Goodwood 'Stunning...a distinctly Australian coming-of-age story...balancing carefully evoked dread with genuine warmth, it's an assured and singular debut.' The Big Issue on Goodwood 'He strolled down Valley Road, only briefly, past the hairdresser and a small cafe. A warm wind stirred, carrying with it the faint smell of pies and horses, and the man paused for just a moment before he sat down. Benny Miller would have driven right past him in her station wagon on that bright and brimming day.' On the first day of summer in 1993, two strangers arrive in the town of Cedar Valley. One is a calm looking man in a brown suit. He makes his way down the main street and walks directly to Cedar Valley Curios my tip is that it will become a firm book club favourite. Five stars!' - Good Reading Magazine
