We join the action just as our ‘hero’ Tom, (early thirties, reads the ‘news’ on the radio) finds out that his girlfriend has not left him. Tom, I have not left you. But I am gone. Please carry on as normal. Love always, Hayley. Has Hayley gone or hasn’t she? Is she coming back? If she has gone, but is coming back, when is she coming back? And what is he supposed to bloody do in the meantime? And what if she’s never coming back?

After her family suffers a tragedy, nine-year-old Alice Hart is forced to leave her idyllic seaside home. She is taken in by her grandmother, June, a flower farmer who raises Alice on the language of Australian native flowers, a way to say the things that are too hard to speak. Under the watchful eye of June and the women who run the farm, Alice settles but grows up increasingly frustrated by how little she knows of her family's story. In her early 20s, Alice's life is thrown into upheaval again when she suffers devastating betrayal and loss.

Emotionally challenging at times, this tale of love, family and self discovery is set in Australian landscapes from desert to sea. The native flower stories and indigenous cultural touches made this an engrossing listen. Highly recommended. Am keen to see what this writer does next.

When Dig Ryan bumps into his first love, Deliliah, after 12 years, he realises that he still fancies her rotten. Nadine has been Dig's best friend for the last 15 years and has only just realised that she's in love with him. Delilah was her nemesis at school, and it turns out that she still is. When she resurfaces, Nadine finds herself feeling extremely jealous. So she resorts to extremely childish things, like phoning her first love, Phil, just to get her own back.

Narrator was great. I think I was impatient listening instead of reading but a good story, told well. A few surprises and some well described 'real' moments especially the pub scene. Worth a read for sure if you like this genre.
