The Shepherd’s Hut, Tim Winton: 2020 #6

Another Aus fiction, and with similar themes to last one – domestic violence, independence, caring for loved ones.
Engaging prose, inside the protagonist’s head.
I didn’t get why there was so much detail about the journey, I know it’s a bit of an off-road trip, but so much detail, especially about comings and goings. Going, coming back, going again, coming back again…
Great characters. Showing where they stand by action not words, especially telling given one character’s reveal of an opinion later in the book.
