Book description
"The Sunken Road is a moving, powerful novel set in the wheat and wool country of mid-north South Australia. At once the story of a region, a town and a people, it is also the story of Anna Tolley - 'leggy, wilful, auburn-haired, always answering back' - who lives through momentous changes and earns the envy, love and hatred of those around her.

"Details accumulate, secrets rise to the surface, and slowly we are granted tantalising insights into the passions and heartaches of one of the most memorable characters in Australian fiction."
