The Natural Way of Things by Charlotte Wood


A dark and haunting tale set in the Australian outback, where a group of women are held captive with no idea why. Doing hard labour and struggling for power with the two male guards, the women soon learn they have each been involved in a sexual scandal with a powerful man. This story is timely in the current world of global political turmoil, misogyny and corporate control. I couldn’t put it down and it made me so uncomfortable in the best way possible. A must-read for everyone and especially great to support a female Australian author!
