River Run – Out Now

Taking place over just one week, River Run is an unputdownable rural drama from the bestselling author of The Bark Cutters and Wild Lands.

 

It is January 1951: Eleanor Webber has returned home to River Run, her family’s sprawling sheep property in western NSW. Fleeing a failed love affair, she hopes for some time and space to heal, but there’s little chance of that happening. With tensions rising in the shearing shed, a mysterious stranger appears on the horizon and Eleanor’s reckless younger brother, Robbie, entangles her in a situation that will have serious repercussions for every member of the Webber family for years to come.

“River Run paints a picture of Australia at this time – still recovering from World War II, the devastating effect war had on its returned soldiers, and constant concern over further threat. It also reflects a changing attitude in the roles of women, and life on the land – the perils caused by Mother Nature, politics of the shearing shed, and the race, gender and age divide.”
