Fierce and lyrical, The Shepherd's Hut by Tim Winton is a story of
survival, solitude and unlikely friendship. Most of all it is about
what it takes to keep hope alive in a parched and brutal world. For
years Jaxie Clackton has dreaded going home. His beloved mum is
dead, and he wishes his dad was too, until one terrible moment
leaves his life stripped to nothing. No one ever told Jaxie
Clackton to be careful what he wishes for. And so Jaxie runs.
There's just one person in the world who understands him, but to
reach her he'll have to cross the vast saltlands of Western
Australia. It is a place that harbours criminals and threatens to
kill those who haven't reckoned with its hot, waterless vastness.
This is a journey only a dreamer - or a fugitive - would attempt.
'A page-turning heartbreaker' - Emma Donoghue, author of Room.
