A Climate of Consequence description

In their new books, Alice Robinson and Lucy Treloar grapple with the consequences of our changing climate. In a Melbourne destroyed by a final cataclysmic storm, Alice’s The Glad Shout is a powerful story of maternal love and desperate resilience. In Lucy’s superb Wolfe Island, the indomitable Kitty Hawke lives alone on an eroding island on the Chesapeake Bay until her granddaughter arrives seeking sanctuary for herself and her persecuted young companions. Both masterfully evoke a dystopian near-future not entirely devoid of hope.
