Trouble is brewing in Australia's Northern Territory...
Patricia Shaw returns to the austere and beautiful Northern Territory in Waiting for the Thunder, the stunning sequel to The Feather and the Stone. Perfect read for fans of Tricia McGill and Tamara McKinley.
'Rich, compelling, well-balanced, unsentimental, vivid' - Kirkus Reviews
The Hamilton and Oatley families, the owners of massive cattle stations in Australia's Northern Territory, rely on the annual monsoons to restore their parched land after the long, exhausting dry season. But this year the ominous storm clouds only serve to remind them of trouble brewing - an Aborgine guerrilla fighter in the district with some of his men is causing havoc indiscriminately and placing both Zack Hamilton and William Oatley in great danger. As the days drag on, the Aborigines' struggle for survival involves them all in a vicious waiting game until men with revenge in their hearts have to face the truth about themselves.
