Winner of the 2014 Viva La Novella Prize

With the death of her mother, eleven-year-old Abigail must learn to fend for herself against the cruel stewardship of her father. At war with the local Aboriginals and intent on staking his claim on the land at any cost, what occurs between the two is a stunning powerplay that exposes the limits of the human imagination.

Inhabiting the speculative peripheries of the historical record, Blood and Bone is an uncompromising exploration of Australia’s dark history and its legacy.

'...the tale is made seamless by a tight structure and a hypnotic style that seems to owe something to the work of Gerald Murnane' — Kerryn Goldsworthy, The Australian
