Rain Stones

(1992)
A collection of stories by

 
 
Anniversary edition of the first book Jackie French published with A & R. This is where a truly remarkable career began.

'Rain Stones' and the other stories in this collection reveal that the country is a magical place, that there is an extra dimension to be found by those whose minds and hearts are open to the possibility. Michael knows that the hills around Canberra are sleeping dinosaurs waiting for darkness to fall to begin their nightly dance. Jacob is blind, but he can show his friends things they never dreamt existed. And Helen is hoping that the rain stones will bring rain to the parched land where everything is dying.

Powerful, imaginative and moving, this collection of short stories reveal the extraordinary early talent of this remarkable writer.
