The Shepherd's Hut
- By: Tim Winton
- Narrated by: Kate Mulvany
- Length: 6 hrs and 13 mins
Jaxie dreads going home. His mum’s dead. The old man bashes him without mercy, and he wishes he was an orphan. And then, in one terrible moment, his life is stripped to little more than what he can carry and how he can keep himself alive. There’s just one person left in the world who understands him and what he still dares to hope for. But to reach her he’ll have to cross the vast saltlands on a trek that only a dreamer or a fugitive would attempt.

Really enjoyed this novel - Winton never disappoints! I loved the raw language and the development of characters. The description of the scenery was marvellous; Winton conveyed a brutal yet wonderful landscape. I very much enjoyed Mulvaney’s performance. I highly recommend this book. 5 stars! ***** Thank you, Tim Winton!
