Product description


"A movingly-great read! A great story teller. After reading the first chapter I found myself laughing along with the main character's wonderfully silent sense of humour which comes through easily
and naturally. I loved her powerfully hungry take on life and the environment.

Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islander people need to be represented by more voices in fiction. I know children in similar situations who have hardly had a whisper of life, let alone
a voice.

In this wonderfully drawn protagonist, the author's unique style caused this sardonic Murri to read the entire book in a sitting. I cheered for both the author and the resilient, eccentric character who will live long in both heart and memory."
John Wenitong (Pemulwuy Weeatunga, author of The Fethafoot Chronicles)

From the Publisher

Patricia Holland was born in Liverpool, England, but has lived in Australia since the age of five, in Melbourne and on farms and cattle stations in Central and North Queensland. She now teaches at a secondary college and lives in a coastal town near Yeppoon in Central Queensland. Her first novel, "The Styx" is dedicated to the memory of her eldest daughter, Sophie, who suffered from Rett Syndrome and died when she was seven years old. Earlier drafts of the manuscript were selected for Hachettes Manuscript Development Program in 2015 and Legend Presss Luke Bitmead Bursary in which it placed third in 2016.
