AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In a world torn asunder, a small corner of Australia is having a chaotic rebirth.

'Eustace Crane II and his Followers of Nathaniel, the begrudging custodians of a ravaged landscape, are harvesting the genetically modified blood of the captive Daughters of Moab - because the Daughters, unlike the Nathans, have an unnatural abundance of good health.

'Assumpta Viali likes her solitude. But her boss, the crotchety Eustace, has other plans for her time and sends her to track an escaped captive, Easter. The hunter and the hunted forge an uneasy alliance, joined by Angus O'Connell, a Nathan with questionable motives. While Assumpta returns to the site of her community, destroyed long ago, Easter realises the perils of her lineage ... and Angus finds hope in the most unlikely of places.

'Driven by loss, and the search for home in an unpredictable new world, each of them must ultimately decide who to trust, and where they belong.' (Publisher's blurb)

Notes

  • Dedication: For Maire.
  • Epigraph: 'I stand in the ring in the dead city and tie on the red shoes...
    They are not mine. They are my mother's. Her mother's before.
    Handed down like an heirloom but hidden like shameful letters.
    The house and the street where they belong are hidden and all the women, too,
    are hidden...' (Anne Sexton, The Red Shoes.)
