Summary
WINNER OF THE MILES FRANKLIN LITERARY AWARDA terrific tale of love and redemption that captivates from the first line.' Nicholas Shakespeare, author of The Dancer UpstairsBetrayed by her husband, Annabelle Beck retreats from Melbourne to her old family home in tropical North Queensland where she meets Bo Rennie, one of the Jangga tribe. Intrigued by Bo's claim that he holds the key to her future, Annabelle sets out with him on a path of recovery that leads back to her childhood and into the Jangga's ancient heartland, where their grandparents' lives begin to yield secrets that will challenge the possibility of their happiness together.With the consummate artistry of a novelist working at the height of his powers, Miller convinces us that the stone country is not only a remote and exotic location in North Queensland, but is also an unvisited place within each of us. Journey to the Stone Country confirms Miller's reputation as one of Australia's most intelligent and uncompromising writers.Miller's fiction has a mystifying power that is always far more than the sum of its parts . . . his footsteps - softly, deftly, steadily - take you places you may not have been, and their sound resonates for a long time.' Andrea Stretton, Sydney Morning Herald row, or even survive, with the terrible knowledge that comes into their possession at the end of their journey?
