Heart of Light Heather Grace's first novel is at once a deeply informed evocation of life in the North - the stations, the towns, politics, racial differences, the land - and an exploration of the transforming power of friendship between women.
When Julie and Kass meet on a remote station, as cook and governess respectively, they seem to have little in common. What they are able to bring to each other - Julie, the Melbourne-educated feminist, and Kass, struggling with early experiences and relationships - sets them on a journey into themselves and the landscape.
Heart of Light is a compelling and powerful story, coming from a part of Australia rarely approached by contemporary novels. It introduces an exciting new voice and talent. (publisher blurb)
