Hope Farm by Peggy Frew
Review by Kay Shirt
Hope Farm by Peggy Frew was shortlisted for both the 2016 Miles Franklin Literary Award and the 2016 Stella Prize. It is a tale of a mother and daughter from both points of view. It is a complex, sad and ultimately predictable glimpse into an alternate way of living. Don’t expect a happily ever after ending – this is a real life win-lose and nothing is perfect type of story. This is such a well written tale. I highly recommend it.
