AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Anna George’s 2014 debut, What Came Before, is a tense psychological thriller about domestic violence. The title refers to the series of events that precede the opening murder. The believable, flawed characters have their motivations laid out in finely calibrated detail.

'The Lone Child continues the Melbourne writer’s interest in the complicated, self-deluding excuses of victims and perpetrators, It once again shows how strong and confident women can be broken by forces beyond their control.

'In a cliff-top holiday house that she herself designed, nestled in the Victorian coastal ranges, architect Neve Ayres, 39, is slowly unravelling. Once almost too perfect in composure and appearance, she is now rumpled and undone by the unrelenting mews of a colicky newborn.' (Introduction)
