Holy Day

Holy Day $21.99

Andrew Bovell

Published by Currency Press

On the white frontier in mid-nineteenth century Australia, a lone, bloodied woman arrives at a traveller's rest in the midst of a violent desert storm

She has a shocking story to tell

She claims the Aborigines have murdered her husband and stolen her infant child

The only witness to a different story is an Aboriginal woman

The narrative draws together the lives of four extraordinary women and their men, all struggling to survive in a hostile and misunderstood landscape

What would cause a missionary's wife to lie?

What chance does the word of an Aboriginal woman have against hers?

Holy Day is a chilling mystery about white fear and black resistance - a powerful drama about truth and trust

It is tense, tender, evocative and theatrical. It is a cry to find the courage to understand our past
