AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'18-year-old Ora has always followed the rules unlike her aunt Dione, who is fond of breaking them. When Ora moves in with her, in the middle of nowhere, she discovers the B&B is in fact, a highly illegal birthing centre. Ora doesn't know where to turn; sooner or later someone is going to die and Dione just won't listen.

'After an anonymous tip-off, Dione goes missing and Ora narrowly misses being locked up by the Special Investigation Force forever. The beach is her only sanctuary and it's here that she meets Jake, thoughtful and experienced, who encourages her to live a little. So why is it that as soon as she starts to have some fun, everything goes dangerously wrong?

'Ora's Gold is a gripping, coming-of-age, dystopia set in Australia. The female characters are a refreshing mix of strength, vulnerability and wisdom.' (Publication summary)
