Karen Harrland’s story unfolds with blood and tears and yet has the warmth of a remote hut’s fireside in a snowstorm. Like a great stag’s antlers, Karen Harrland’s Tasmanian story enfolds the reader in both the beauty and terror of life far beyond the city lights.

A stirring and beautiful story which, like the waves of the Southern Ocean, never falters. A strong and fierce girl, iced-up thugs and worldly-wise women in remote Tasmania: the perfect book for a snowy night, a fireside whiskey and desperate hope that things might get better.
