Black Bones, Red Earth
A historical drama set in the unforgiving landscape of the Australian outback during the 1950s, the story follows the life of Katherine, an English child migrant who is consigned to an austere life on an isolated property beyond Broken Hill. There is little love in Katherine's life until Aboriginal station hands offer their friendship, but love comes at a deadly price.
Part two brings listeners to the modern-day English Lake District before taking us back to Australia for the story's climax. Inspired by the true experiences of family and friends closest to the author, Black Bones, Red Earth is a story of hope, love, sacrifice and resilience.
Beautifully read by Australian actress, Sandy Gore, star of television, film and stage, this heart wrenching tale is the sometimes harrowing, yet ultimately uplifting story of a child's search for love, and a woman's test of faith. Katherine's journey is an emotional roller-coaster with a deeply satisfying ending.
