    1. The Great Inland Sea is the outback of New South Wales and it s not a happy or hospitable place OBTW Day, the principal character, can t swim either so factor that into your metaphorical allusions Day, as a young boy flees from Australia and a rather traumatic upbringing and escapes to America He sells his horse to escape his home and ends up training and grooming them in America where he meets his troubled soulmate Callie Lots of family secrets in this dysfunctional family This is a rather haun [...]


    2. I don t usually give such good ratings but Agapanthus Tango really blew me away and completely exceeded my expectations It was an exceptionally well written and well crafted novel, about life, love, relationships, identity, and the past.The story follows Day s journey of discovering his past and understanding what happened to his mother, and why The first part of the book alternates between his present life in America and flashbacks of his youth, setting a perfect atmosphere of mystery which wil [...]


    3. The prose in this short novel is taut and spare, so much so that much of the story has to be deduced from intelligent guesswork.All the characters are damaged, but Darwin, the narrator s father on his deathbed seems the most human Day s mother, a gentle and cultured Viennese Jew, married him in Europe, and went mad in the Australian outback What seemed to Day to be cruelty was Darwin s inept way of caring for her The plot shifts between Maude in the Riverina and Frances on the horse circuit in t [...]


    4. I m still thinking about this book It surprised me I did not expect to enjoy a book, despite its incredibly well described detail and images, that seemed to take place in the East Coast horse world of 1950s It quickly went backwards in time and grabbed me, with the story of immigrants pioneers in Australia s outback desert The sad luck stories and traits with which Francis imbues his characters create a terrific piece of literature I got wrapped up in the mainly awful lives of his characters and [...]


    5. Just okay The book is well written the descriptions of the rugged Australian setting are poetic and deeply evocative and were by far my favorite part of the book but the story and characters just didn t grab me Not one I would ever re read.


    6. A lyrical novel published by SF based MacAdam Cage that is set where I grew up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland It s about training and riding horses I met the author, an Australian lawyer, at a reading downtown a few years ago I ve been meaning to read this ever since Maybe this summer


    7. I met the author David Francis at my yoga class Since then we ve become good friends He is a great author and this is a start to great career in fictional writing He s a lawyer turned writer Very touching story.


    8. Lyrical story of a young boy who was aware of his father s cruelty to his mother while she was dying They live with so many secrets and he must visit his father when he s old to discover the truth before he can seriously start his own life journey.



    9. I loved this little gem Spare, capturing scenes, emotions, relationships in a beautiful way Maybe not a 5, but above a 4
