Publisher's Summary

Abandoned by her mother as a toddler, only occasionally visited by her volatile father and raised solely by her tormented Pop, Justine finds sanctuary in The Choke, a place where the banks of the Murray River are so narrow they can almost touch.

Although Justine doesn't know it, her father is a menacing criminal, and the world she is exposed to is one of great peril to her. She must make sense of it on her own - and when she eventually does, she knows what she has to do....

    "Loved it."

    Really moving story about how vulnerable children can be. Great characters and story. This book made me think a lot. Also loved listening to Sofie Laguna's book The Eye of the Sheep on Audible.

    "Absolutely loved this!"

    This book reminded me of Melina Marchetta's early work. Loved all of the Australian references.

    "Sad story"

    The Eye of the Sheep is one of my favourite stories so I bought this book.
    This is a very sad story and the writing style makes it very realistic.
