A Stolen Season

ABOUT
THE BOOK

Two-times winner of the Miles Franklin Literary Award, Rodney Hall presents the story of three people experiencing a period of life they never thought possible, and, perhaps, should never have been granted at all.

Adam’s life has been ruined by war. A veteran of the Iraq conflict who has suffered such extensive bodily trauma that he can only really survive by means of a mechanical skeleton.

Marianna’s has been ruined by men. A woman who has had to flee the country after her husband lied to the wrong people.

John Philip’s by too much money. Until he receives a surprise inheritance in the evening of his own life.
