Through the Lonesome Dark by Paddy Richardson (May 2017)

Through the Lonesome Dark by Paddy Richardson (May 2017)For the men of the town, Blackball is the daily hardship of working the mine.  For the women, it's the dismal cottages with the piles of coal outside.  Yet for Pansy, Otto and Clem, children of Blackball, it's the treasure of the creek and bush and the richness of the friendship which binds them together.  But as Pansy soon realises, 'grown up is serious' and past promises cannot be kept.

Set in the times surrounding the Great War, Through the Lonesome Dark confronts and questions the loyalties demanded by family, friendship and love - both at home and amongst the ravages of war - and the hope of finding your way back.
