The Mallee Girl

book | Fiction | Apr 2022
World → Penguin Random House (Ed. Ali Watts)

Born-and-bred Mallee girl, Pippa Black, endures a far from perfect marriage. When she finds the courage to flee, two cryptic words written on a paper napkin send her in search of the one person who might help her – a person who may not even exist. 

Her quest leads her to a remote town in the Victorian alps. As a runaway seeking refuge among strangers, Pippa learns that she’s been mistakenly implicated in a shocking crime. She’s now hiding from the police, as well as from her violent husband. Pippa changes her name, her appearance and begins to forge a new life for herself. But it’s not easy to run from your past. It has a way of catching up with you …
