Reviews

'Engrossing and wonderful storytelling. I really loved these strong, brave Wiradyuri characters.' -- Melissa Lucashenko, author of Too Much Lip
'A powerful story of family, place and belonging.' -- Kate Grenville, author of A Room Made of Leaves
'Bila Yarrudhanggalangdhuray is a remarkable story of courage and a love of country. The tenacity of an Aboriginal woman, Wagadhaany, is made possible by the deep strength of the earth she walks on ... It is a story that hums with contemporary resonance. Anita Heiss writes with heart and energy on every page of this novel.' -- Tony Birch, author of The White Girl
'It is a love story, a story of loss, a hopeful story. The river is a guide, but you have to be open to its spiritual lessons.' -- Terri Janke
'This is a book to sink into. Lyrical and tender, Anita Heiss's Bila Yarrudhanggalangdhuray tells a story of courage, connection and belonging which is both universal and deeply personal, with the river singing through every page. A grand achievement and destined to be read for a long time to come.' -- Meg Keneally, author of Fled and The Wreck
'The novel flows like the great Murrumbidgee River itself, with powerful undercurrents that sweep the reader along - I feel it's a book that all Australians should read, to try and understand why our colonial past still causes so much pain and grievance.' -- Kate Forsyth
'Anita Heiss is at the height of her storytelling powers in this inspiring, heart-breaking, profound tale that explores the deep, eternal connection to country and the resilience of the human heart. Wagadhaany is a timeless heroine who reminds us of the steps our ancestors walked.' -- Larissa Behrendt
