This autobiographical debut literary novel tells the story of a young woman who has an affair with a priest. 

Maggie is a student at a secondary convent school in rural NSW where, seeking solace from her violent family background, she falls under the spell of a predatory priest. The exploitative affair that ensues tests Maggie’s strength in her lonely desperation to keep both her child and her inner life. 

A magnificent new voice and a profound exploration of desire, consent and the use and abuse of power.
