Driving into the Sun

Author(s): Marcella Polain

Drama | West Australian authors

For Orla, living in the suburbs in 1968 on the cusp of adolescence, her father is a great shining light, whose warm and powerful presence fills her world. But in the aftermath of his sudden death, Orla, her mother and her sister are left in a no-man's land, a place where the rights and protections of the nuclear family suddenly and mysteriously no longer apply, and where the path between girl and woman must be navigated alone.

KERRYS REVIEW - This story is written from the little girl Orlas perspective. Its very familiar in the sense that this story is located in Perth, so the suburbs and landmarks are all very real for me. Its an intense, superb read that made me rather emotional. This is one of those stories where the ending has a total twist that you dont see coming. I had the opportunity of meeting Marcella Polain at an author event and loved hearing her perspective of the book.
