      Inspired by her mother’s post-natal depression, Kathryn Heyman gently crafts a beautifully woven story of two women separated by four decades and very different lives. Jess, wild country girl sold off by her father as a circus stunt rider, ‘part woman, part horse’ and Rose the English immigrant and new mother struggling to make a home in a harsh post-war Australia.Rose is estranged to the heat of the Australian summer and the immigrant tin camps. ‘It was an alien language, this new count [...]

      This book is a combination of two very interesting stories, which turn out to be cleverly woven together. I don't want to spoil anything. It opens with a woman in a '50s mental hospital getting electric shock treatment which is a powerful opening.
