White Heart

My brother Ambrose is a tiger hunter. He is a man beyond the weather with his breath in the sky and his heart on the track ahead.

A first novel filled with the magic of childhood and the poignant transition to adulthood of Farley Willow and her brother Ambrose. White Heart is a novel that evokes the ever-present beauty of Tasmania from sea-shore to the south-west wilderness. Ambrose searches for evidence of the last Tasmanian tiger while Farley journeys into native American ritual. A novel about the fragile landscape of the human heart.

A delicious crispness and an unusual turn of phrase.”
