Deeper Water by Jessie Cole

This lyrically-written and exciting novel will keep you riveted to the very last page. It's lush description of the landscape, sympathetic characters and strange and evocative story impressed me greatly.

The tale involves Mema, a young and innocent girl and Hamish, who she saves from rising floods. Hamish is lost without his computer and phone and finds himself rather adrift in the remote and beautiful countryside near Byron Bay where Mema lives. Mema has difficulty coping with her growing feelings towards the older man in this coming-of-age novel.

Jessie Cole is certainly an Australian writer to watch.
