'The stories of Miki, Leon and Max intertwine in this beautiful novel about friendship and resilience...Tension builds to a dramatic, satisfying conclusion.' - Good Reading magazine '...refreshingly real...ultimately an empowering novel' - Style magazine 'A well-crafted novel tha...t also shines a light on the everyday violence that thrives where eyes are averted and silence prevails.' - The Weekend Australian '...an engaging read for lovers of contemporary Australian fiction.' - SMH, Spectrum 'The Orchardist's Daughter is a novel I would recommend without reservation, it is a remarkable yarn that left a strong mark on my heart.' - Mrs B's Book Reviews Sixteen-year-old Mikaela has grown up isolated and homeschooled on an apple orchard in southeastern Tasmania, until an unexpected event shatters her family. Eighteen months later, she and her older brother Kurt are running a small business in a timber town. Miki longs to make connections and spend more time in her beloved forest, but she is kept a virtual prisoner by Kurt, who leads a secret life of his own. When Miki meets Leon, another outsider, things slowly begin to change. But the power to stand up for yourself must come from within. And Miki has to fight to uncover the truth of her past and discover her strength and spirit. Set in the old-growth eucalypt forests and vast rugged mountains of southern Tasmania, The Orchardist's Daughter is an uplifting story about friendship, resilience and finding the courage to break free.
