Publisher Description

Set in the harsh desert of the Australian outback, Time Is the Longest Distance is a moral story of immorality in a place where “night comes on like a door slamming shut.”

Lilly, a 45-year-old New Yorker, is persuaded by her newly-found father, Cameron, to take on the Canning Stock Route, the most difficult outback track in the country. Crossing the dead heart of the Great Sandy and Gibson deserts, she is joined by her half-brother, Grant, and his twenty-something daughter, Jen. 

Like a moon walker far from her life, Lilly becomes entangled in an unlikely love affair and witness to an unsavory death. The hard days and long nights provide time and space for Lilly to recall the years with her ex-husband, Stephen, artist and all-around drunk—the greatest love and disappointment in her life—forcing her to examine her own imperfections as she learns, first-hand, about the power and destruction of secrets, sexual taboos, and the thrill of transgression

Adventure and Angst Collide in the Outback

This is a story about family, or what one might think is family, and the damage of long-held secrets. It is also a story of what could be seen as a mostly ho-hum trek across the Australian outback interspersed with crazy occurrences like huge storms, illicit sexual encounters, and bar room brawls.
I definitely enjoyed it, and especially the challenges faced by Lilly, the main character, and her long lost but rediscovered father Cameron. I certainly do not wish to spoil it, but I will say that you will be surprised by the encounters between daughter and son and, let’s just say how they affect an already frayed father-son relationship.
Being relatively isolated during this period, I find any story about traveling through wide open spaces about which I know little is fascinating.
