It is the winter of 1985. Hope Farm sticks out of the ragged landscape like a decaying tooth, its weatherboard walls sagging into the undergrowth. Silver's mother, Ishtar, has fallen for the charismatic Miller, and the three of them have moved to the rural hippie commune to make a new start. But here, at just 13, she is thrust into an unrelenting adult world, and the walls begin to come tumbling down, with deadly consequences.
"Elegant, tender and very wise.... Hope Farm is beautifully written, acutely observed and, best of all, completely absorbing... A great novel." (Chris Womersley, author of Cairo and Bereft)
"An original tale.... Peggy's voice is contemporary, her observations sharp and sensitive." (Sofie Laguna, author of The Eye of the Sheep)
