My dad, he collects broken things ... Where other people see junk he sees potential ... My dad collects broken people too ...
Vincent is forty years old, with little to show for his life except his precious sixteen-year-old daughter, Gemma, sensitive, insightful and wise beyond her years.
When a stranger crashes her car outside Vincent and Gemma's northern NSW home, their lives take a dramatic turn. In an effort to help the stranded woman, father and daughter are drawn into a world of unexpected and life-changing consequences.
Darkness on the Edge of Town is a hauntingly searing tale that beguiles the reader with its deceptively simple prose, its gripping and unrelenting tensions and its disturbingly beautiful observations.
