In the Clearing

Pomare, JP

  8 Reviews

What happens in the Clearing, stays in the Clearing ... but is it really possible to walk away from a cult? Adrienne has a vision to lead twelve perfect children into the future, but it involves a commitment and determination that affects the different members of the community to varying degrees. But it is too much for Amy who flees to the 'outside'. And just where does Freya Heywood fit in, with her son Billy and her normal, everyday life?

Told through Amy and Freya's intertwining stories, this chilling fast-moving contemporary psychological thriller, set in the Victorian bushland, echoes real-life events from 1960s and 70s Australia.

Too dark for some people - most wouldn't want to read more of this author though.

A few didn't read it, and some that did didn't enjoy it.

Good read for most. Some found the content a bit confronting and so gave it a lower rating.

General consensus was that this was a clever, well-written book, but the subject matter was disturbing. The twists and turns of the plot keep the reader engaged.

Half of our book group were interested in the dark themes of this cleverly written book. The other half of the group struggled with the themes and couldn't get past the first pages.

Undemanding, captures your attention. A good thriller, and read very quickly. Well-written.
