In the glorious southwest bush region of Western Australia women neighbours take the world by storm.
Meet Ana, atheistic paediatrician turned protea grower, Elsie, a fallen RC prostitute turned millionaire, Teresa, a practising RC, gossipy dairy farmer who would rather be a ballet dancer, Jane, a convicted murderer and meditative painter who wanted to be a Buddhist nun, Sophia, a zoologist researching the mating habits of ring-tailed possums and an foul-mouthed, recalcitrant, abused twelve-year old genius who knits.
Mix them up, add Arua, the Goddess of Women in a bright-white light on a rainbow, and what does the world get? A social phenomenon? A new religion? A political movement? A safe haven? A war? Read this book and decide for yourself.
