'A book that delights, appeals but never waivers in its brutal honesty. If you didn't laugh, you'd cry.' Sue Maslin, producer of The Dressmaker

From the bestselling author of The Dressmaker comes a story of love, justice and survival in a country town at war with the elements and one another.

In a close-knit rural community, and espeically one plagued by years of drought and secrets, it doesn't take much to ignite an all-out war. Perhaps only a single spark. So when Neralie McIntosh returns from the city, hostilities immediately erupt between her old beau and his new wife, between farmers and townies; and, of course, the local Akubra-sporting politician is waiting in the wings for the chance to turn the whole mess to her advantage...
