The True Green Of Hope

Picture of The True Green Of Hope
Sam’s life is haunted by the day that her mother inexplicably abandoned her at the beach, leaving her homeless at thirteen. One minute she was surfing the pure, clean waves, and the next her mother and little sister were gone. Years later, Sam has created a life for herself by the sea with her partner Em. When a coma patient is brought to the hospital where Sam works, she believes the woman to be her mother. Before she can discover the truth, she must unravel her own confused memories of that traumatic day. The True Green of Hope is a provocative novel about the natures of love and memory, and how the truth can be what we make it. Praise for N. A. Bourke’s The Bone Flute: ‘Bourke’s capacity to write provocatively, even beautifully, about pain is reminiscent of Jeanette Winterson.’ Sydney Morning Herald
