I received a copy of Flyaway in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Flyaway is the latest novel to come from the mind of Kathleen Jennings, and it is a thing of beauty. Having read it, I can now understand all of the hype I’ve been hearing about this novella.
Bettina Scott is a woman of many names, depending on who you ask. Growing up in a small Western Queensland town, there is a certain air of mystery around her. And her entire family. Her father went missing one day, and then her brothers followed.
Now she’s alone with her mother, and she’s on a path of being that good little girl that her mother always wanted. That is, until the mystery became too much for her to continue turning away from.
“If you were born to Runagate with all its fragile propriety, its tidy civilization, its ring-fence of roads and paddocks, wires and blood, there was nothing else in the world beyond but trees.”
