The Rain Heron

Robbie Arnott

5/5 Rating 1 Reviews

From a 2019 Sydney Morning Herald Young Novelist of the Year and the author of the highly praised novel Flames, comes another beguiling, transformative work of fiction confirming Robbie Arnott as one of Australia's most exciting writers.

Ren lives alone on the remote frontier of a country devastated by a coup. High on the forested slopes, she survives by hunting and trading-and forgetting. But when a young soldier comes to the mountains in search of a local myth, Ren is inexorably drawn into her impossible mission.

As their lives entwine, unravel and erupt-as myths merge with reality-both Ren and the soldier are forced to confront what they regret, what they love, and what they fear. Robbie Arnott's stunning second novel remakes our relationship with the natural world. The Rain Heron is equal parts horror and wonder, and utterly gripping.
