Product description

Book Description

The Burnt Country is an enthralling story of integrity, resilience and resistance, from the author of the bestselling The Woolgrower's Companion.

About the Author

Joy Rhoades was born in Roma in western Queensland, with an early memory of flat country and a broad sky. Growing up, she loved two things best- reading and the bush, whether playing in creek beds and paddocks, or climbing a tree to sit with a book. Her family would visit her grandmother, a fifth generation grazier and a gentle teller of stories of her life on her family's sheep farm.

At 13, Joy left Roma for Brisbane, first for school and then to study law at university. After graduating, she worked all over- first Sydney, then London, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo and New York. It was in New York that she completed a Masters in Creative Writing at the New School University, and wrote much of The Woolgrower's Companion, a novel inspired in part by snippets of her grandmother's life and times.

She now lives in London with her husband and their two young children, but she misses the Australian sky. The Burnt Country is her second novel.
