Something For a Rainy Day
Joanna Atherfold Finn
Audrey and Steven Trott live on the Oasis Estate - a new, gated community marketed as a private and exclusive coastal retreat selling the dream of the ideal lifestyle. Encased by bush and ocean, it promises a safe sanctuary resplendent in beauty, relaxation and exclusivity. Or does it? When her expectations of happiness and family evaporate, Audrey sets out determined to re-establish a crucial relationship. When the weather changes for the worse and our rainy day arrives, will we have it in us to prevail?
Joanna Atherfold Finn's reflective portrayal of character and her striking depiction of place resonates long after the final sentence has been read.
