“A fairytale wrapped about in riddles and other thorny bits of enchantments and stories, but none of them quite like any you’ve heard before.” —Kelly Link
“An unforgettable tale, as beautiful as it is thorny.” —The New York Times Book Review
In a small Western Queensland town, a reserved young woman receives a note from one of her vanished brothers—a note that makes her question memories of their disappearance and her father’s departure.
A beguiling story that proves that gothic delights and uncanny family horror can live—and even thrive—under a burning sun, Flyaway introduces readers to Bettina Scott, whose search for the truth throws her into tales of eerie dogs, vanished schools, cursed monsters, and enchanted bottles.
Transformation, enchantment and the emotional truths of family history teem in Kathleen Jennings’ stunning debut, Flyaway. An Indie Next Pick!
