ALL THE SHIMMERING SKIES


GENERAL BOOKS

All Our Shimmering Skies is set in Darwin in 1942. As Japanese bombs rain down, motherless Molly Hook, the gravedigger’s daughter, turns to the sky for guidance. She carries a stone heart inside a duffel bag, next to a map that leads to Longcoat Bob, the deep-country sorcerer who put a curse on her family. By her side are the most unlikely travelling companions: Greta, a razor-tongued actress, and Yukio, a fallen Japanese fighter pilot. Beyond the bush lies the treasure. Close behind them trails the dark. And above them, always, are the skies. All Our Shimmering Skies is a story about gifts that fall from the sky, curses we dig from the earth and the secrets we bury inside ourselves.
