Product description

Product Description

A hauntingly searing tale of the kindness of strangers and the malice of loved ones, featuring an accidental hero, his daughter and a tragic interloper who crashes into their lives in a northern NSW country town - with unexpected consequences...

'My dad, he collects broken things ... Where other people see junk he sees potential ... My dad collects broken people too ... '

Vincent is nearly forty years old, with little to show for his life except his precious sixteen-year-old daughter, Gemma: sensitive, insightful and wise beyond her years. When a stranger crashes her car outside Vincent and Gemma's bush home, their lives take a dramatic turn. In an effort to help the stranded woman, father and daughter are drawn into a world of unexpected and life-changing consequences.

DARKNESS ON tHE EDGE OF tOWN is a haunting tale that beguiles the reader with its deceptively simple prose, its gripping and unrelenting tensions, and its disturbing yet tender observations.
