Book Review - Bloodlines (Margaret River Press)
Interweaving two narratives that shift between a close-knit farming community in Western Australia’s Wheatbelt and village life in the islands of Papua New Guinea, Bloodlines contrasts the story of thirty-year old Beth, struggling to come to terms with a recent tragedy, with the story of her parents, Clem and Rose, and their intense love for each other. Exploring the attachments that we form to those places we call home and the strength – and complexities – of the bonds that grow within families and communities, Bloodlines is a novel about belonging and about recognising your place in the world. This is an ambitious, big-hearted, at times confronting novel from an exciting new voice in Western Australian literature.
