And lo! Number 9 is the winner! That’s you, Kim, and it’s a fitting thankyou for all the years I’ve enjoyed your blog:)

You’ll need to email me your postal address please…

If you missed out, this is the blurb, to entice you to get a copy.

Erica Marsden’s son, an artist, has been imprisoned for a monstrous act of revenge. Trapped in her grief, Erica retreats from Sydney to a sleepy hamlet on the south coast, near where Daniel is serving his sentence.

There, in a rundown shack by the ocean, she obsesses over building a labyrinth. To create it—to navigate the path through her quandary—Erica will need the help of strangers. And that will require her to trust, and to reckon with her past.

The Labyrinth is a story of guilt and denial, of the fraught relationship between parents and children. It is also an examination of how art can be ruthlessly destructive, and restorative. Mesmerising yet disquieting, it shows Amanda Lohrey to be at the peak of her powers

    • The trouble is, amongst the names I know, there’s a whole lot of deserving entries.
      Thank goodness for random number generators which absolve me from making the decision.

  3. Oh Lisa, I’m chuffed! Thanks so much. I will look forward to reading this very much now that September is just around the corner and my #20booksofsummer challenge (which I have failed miserably) is almost over — this means I can get back to read new books again and not ones that have been languishing in my TBR for years.
