Book12social

Beloved Australian author Di Morrissey takes her inspiration from her journeys through Australia. Her latest novel, Rain Music, is inspired by her adventures in far north Queensland - its characters, its forgotten history, its modern dilemmas.

A brother and sister, Ned and Bella Chisholm, are struggling with a family tragedy that has set them on opposite paths. After Ned takes off to pursue his musical dreams in far north Queensland, he disappears. When Bella goes in search of her brother, she ends up in remote Cooktown and both their lives are dramatically changed in the isolated, little-known far north of Australia.

Perfect for lovers of Australian and rural fiction.
