    Wimmera

    This is such a sad story. So relevant to the revelations of sexual abuse of children. Teo friends grow up in a country town. A lazy boyhood of yabbying and cricket gets destroyed when one is groomed by a paedophile living next door. Years later, their paths cross and the truth is revealed, consequences for these young men, their families and their lives are devastating. Beautifully written. Vivid descriptions. The deep pain from abuse ripples through the pages. Sad, but compelling.

    Wimmera

    A good book, a refreshing read and for some perhaps close to the bone. Often it's not till our later years that we learn that some of those whom we shared our childhood, didn't have an idilic life. Many never speak of it and we will never know. This book in all its simplicity and innocence highlights a harsh reality

    Wimmera

    Challenging topic to read. Well written. A good reflection of Victoria Australia and invoked childhood memories of the time and way we lived. A quick read

    Great Read

    While the topic of this book is of a sensitive nature, it was well written for a debut novel. The story flowed well from beginning to end and certainly envoked memories of small towns in Australia. Highly recommend this book.
