Drover’s Wife

Molly Johnson’s husband is away droving sheep, leaving her alone to care for their four
children at their remote Snowy Mountains homestead. Despite being heavily pregnant,
Molly keeps various threats, from nature and other people, at bay. But when Yadaka, an
Aboriginal man on the run from white law enforcement, intrudes on the sanctuary she has
carved out, the brutal hardships and secrets that have followed them both throughout their
lives must be confronted.
