I was first introduced to Australian author Dean Mayes, back in mid 2011, when I read and reviewed his debut novel, ‘The Hambledown Dream’.
I often wonder whether the debut novelists who contact me, will persevere with their writing careers, or if a single published book is fated to be their contribution to the literary world. It was great therefore, to hear from Dean, in my opinion a very talented writer, for a second time, now that his novel, ‘Gifts Of The Peramangk’ has been published.
I have made this cover image a little larger than usual, to highlight, what I hope you will agree, is its touching poignancy and ethereal beauty.
In the Adelaide hills of South Australia lies a triangular wedge of countryside extending from the Barossa Valley in the north to the southern reaches of the Fleurieu Peninsula. This is the lands of the Peramangk Nation and the home of the Peramangk Aborigines – A tribe steeped in a unique culture and held with a mystical reverence.
As the book was an author review request, this free Kindle download was sent to me by Dean Mayes.
