A heartbreaking verse novel about love and death, grief and beauty, and the very individual ways we make sense of it all.

Lottie, the daughter of German migrants, develops a fascination for death after losing her mother at a young age. She collects dead creatures and lovingly cares for them, hoping to preserve them, to save them from disintegration. Her father understands – Lottie has a scientific mind, he thinks. Her aunt wants it to stop, and she goes to cruel lengths to make sure it does. And her mother? Lottie's is searching for a way to be close to her.

Review:

An "exquisite lyrical verse novel...[a] sharply evocative tale."--West Weekend Magazine

"Couples the swift, clipped charm of a verse novel and the unpredictable beauty of the Australian landscape in a captivating manner...Lingers in the mind for weeks afterwards."--Tulpa Magazine

"Kernot has created an intriguing tale of mystery and the imagination with a haunting ambience...a delightful story about grief transformed and the urge to resurrect and to re-create."--Saturday Paper

"Beautifully written...while the novel is about grief, it is also about the importance of remembering and keeping the memory of loved ones alive."--Magpies Magazine

"An intense exploration of grief." --Steven Herrick, author of By the River and Cold Skin
