1942 – Japanese bombs rain down in Darwin, Australia.

Motherless Molly Hook, the gravedigger’s daughter, turns to the road, seeking the deep-country sorcerer who put a curse on her family.

By her side are the most unlikely travelling companions: Greta, a razor-tongued actress, and Yukio, a fallen Japanese fighter pilot.

As they journey from the vine forests to Australia’s wild and magical monsoon lands, they will encounter grave danger and discover true love…

Immerse yourself in a love letter to Australia from its best-loved writer.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘The most extraordinary writer – a rare talent' Nikki Gemmell, internationally bestselling author ‘This is a lyrical, mesmerising mythic quest story from the author of Boy Swallows Universe’ SUNDAY EXPRESS 'A work of shimmering originality and energy, with extraordinary characters and a clever, thrilling plot … unputdownable' SYDNEY MORNING HERALD ‘Even better than Boy Swallows Universe…There’s a whiff of southern gothic here, with Molly reminding me of Scout Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird’ THE AUSTRALIAN ‘Tumultuous and ultimately beautiful… poetic and full of grace’ HERALD SUN ‘The book is alight with joyous candour, extravagantly beautiful writing and a series of intriguing jungle-set pieces’ ADELAIDE ADVERTISER ‘A magical realist epic grounded by a vividly evoked sense of place and a cheeky sense of humour’ WEST AUSTRALIAN 'As Australian as outback red dirt and as universal as the sky young Molly Hook's journey takes place beneath, All Our Shimmering Skies is an open-hearted wonder, by turns heartbreaking and full of hope, no less than an instant classic' VENERO ARMANNO 'Australia has a new literary hero. Molly Hook – part Cordelia, part Jo March, part Pippi Longstocking – pulls us into a story and a landscape that is mythic, beguiling and almost hallucinatory in its beauty. And instantly recognisable as our own' KRISTINA OLSSON 'This is storytelling at its absolute purest, a truly courageous expression of longing, hope and love … against unimaginable odds' ASHER KEDDIE
