The daughter of a pastoralist, Daphne grew up in a remote valley of the Brindabella Ranges where she raised her family with her husband, Doug, in a world of horses, cattle and stockmen. But then the government forced them off their land and years later, Daphne is still trying to come to terms with the grief of her departure from the mountains and its tragic impact on her husband. It is during a regular visit to her valley that she meets Abby, a lonely young woman shying away from close contact with others, running from a terrible event in her early teens. But Daphne is a patient mentor, and slowly a gentle friendship develops between them.

While Abby’s family history means she tries to ignore her feelings for journalist Cameron, Daphne struggles with her own past and the long shadow it may have cast over the original inhabitants of their land. Both women must help each other face the truth and release long-buried family secrets before they can be free.

The Grass Castle is a sweeping rural epic that reflects the strength which resides in us all: the courage to grow and learn from the past.

    Abby Hunter is a struggling student who is studying kangaroos. Although her training may not pay very well Abby still loves tracking these beautiful big creatures. Just being able to watch them graze, sleep and interact with one another is more than enough for Abby. Having grown up on a farm in Victoria, Abby also loves being outdoors. She couldn’t imagine being stuck in some stuffy office all day.

    Cameron Barlow is a journalist and has been sent out to visit Abby to do an interview about the kan

    Cameron Barlow is a journalist and has been sent out to visit Abby to do an interview about the kangaroos. He wanted to meet in a cafe, but Abby wouldn’t hear of it. She wanted him to get a clear understanding of what she did and to see the kangaroos in their own environment. Abby first impressions of Cameron was that he was a city boy who had no idea about how to drive on country roads. She showed him around and answered his questions and once he left he said he would keep in contact. And Abby was hoping he would keep he’s word although Abby has always been a loner she did enjoy having Cameron there.

    One day whilst Abby is out checking her kangaroos in the Birndabella Ranges she meets an elderly lady by the name of Daphne Norriington. Abby soon discovers that that this lady is the original owner of the deserted homestead in the area. Abby and Daphne will soon become close friends and they will share with each other their life long secrets. This is something that Abby has never done before as she has spent a lot of time on her own. The only other person she has ever opened up to was her gran who passed away when she was a teenager. But should some secrets and memories stay in the past as reliving them could do harm to those who are still here.

    I absolutely LOVED this story. I loved all the characters especially Daphne. What a beautiful, sweet old lady. And I really enjoyed the friendship that Abby and Daphne shared as it reminded me of someone I use to know who was very close to me and we to shared a very special friendship. I also enjoyed reading about the kangaroos and the description of the countryside made you feel like you were there amongst it all. For me this book was a very enjoyable read and I didn’t want it to end. I HGHLY recommend this book. This is a beautifully written novel by an Aussie author and one in which I will remember for a long time.

    Abby Hunter was a struggling student, studying in Canberra and involved in research with kangaroos. Beautiful creatures, the grace and elegance of their movements captivated her continually. She loved working outside; having grown up on a farm in Victoria she had never wanted to work behind a desk. Now her training was taking her to places she loved, working with wild animals – the respect she had for the animals had her working closely with them, but keeping her distance; not invading their spa

    The day she met Cameron Barlow, she was waiting for him up in the hills to interview her about her research. Cameron was a journalist, and wanted a human interest story – her PhD supervisor who was an ecologist with a world-wide reputation for his excellence in science encouraged her to meet with the media – it would further her career he said. The WRX Cameron arrived in told her all she needed to know about this city boy, or so she thought.

    Abby was a loner; she preferred her own company and didn’t do the social situations at all well – her young past was buried deep, and she had no desire to get too close to anyone – she wouldn’t risk having to discuss her family or her life. The afternoon she was checking her tagged kangaroos in the Brindabella Ranges near an old, deserted homestead, she was surprised to notice an old woman seated nearby. But when Abby witnessed her collapse, she raced to her side, helping her while she regained her composure. And so Abby met Daphne Norrington, the original owner of the homestead they were beside.

    As Abby and Daphne became close friends, they both realized each other had secrets – deep, long ago secrets laden with grief. Daphne reminded Abby of her beloved Gran whom she had lost while she was a teenager – she had loved her Gran and so immediately felt comfortable with Daphne, sensing the old lady needed a friend, as she did. But the trauma of the past was seeking release – Abby was feeling more and more overwhelmed. And Daphne found herself drifting into the past – she couldn’t get past the grief which was always there, threatening her sanity. Would these two women be able to release the secrets that bound them? Together could they forgive and move forward?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderfully moving story. The characters were well crafted though at times I wanted to shake Abby! Daphne was delightful, a sweet old lady, but I wanted to shake her at times too! The way the past was woven into the present was beautifully done, everything blended and wound its way to a very satisfying conclusion. I have no hesitation in recommending this novel highly.

    With thanks to The Reading Room and the publisher for my copy to read and review.
