Fiction - Published: 25/Jul/2017 - ISBN: 9781925483741

Taboo takes place in the present day, in the rural South-West of Western Australia, and tells the story of a group of Noongar people who revisit, for the first time in many decades, a taboo place: the site of a massacre that followed the assassination, by these Noongar's descendants, of a white man who had stolen a black woman. They come at the invitation of Dan Horton, the elderly owner of the farm who hopes that by hosting the group he will cleanse some moral stain from the ground on which he and his family have lived for generations. But the sins of the past will not be so easily expunged. Taboo is a novel of survival and renewal, and ultimately of hope as much as of despair.
