Locust summer

Locust Summer is coming soon from Fremantle Press


On the cusp of summer, 1986, Rowan Brockman’s mother asks if he will come home to Septimus in the Western Australian Wheatbelt to help with the final harvest. 

Rowan’s brother, the natural heir to the farm, has died, and Rowan’s dad’s health is failing.

Although he longs to, there is no way that Rowan can refuse his mother’s request as she prepares the farm for sale.

This is the story of the final harvest – the story of one young man in a place he doesn’t want to be, being given one last chance to make peace before the past, and those he has loved, disappear.
