OReilly ¾ 7 Free read Summary The Fine Colour of Rust Set in the Australian bush a wryly funny beautifully observed novel about friendship motherhood love and the importance of fighting for things that matterUSA coverLoretta Boskovic never dreamed she would end up a single mother with two kids in a dusty Australian country town She never imagined she’d have to campaign to save the local primary school She certainly had no idea her best friend would turn out to be the crusty old junk man All in all she’s starting to wonder i. This is a review for the Australian Women Writers Challenge The genre I ll call it contemporary fiction with humour truckloads of itWhen we first meet Loretta Boscovic she s daydreaming about dumping her kids in an orphanage and riding off into the sunset with her dream lover on a Harley no less A single mum she lives with her two children in dusty town called GunapanI was captivated from the opening pages With sparse words PA O Reilly skilfully crafts a strong image of a struggling town and its inhabitants The goats Loretta s car her constant battle for what s right make for an eclectic lead character but the lesser players aren t abandoned either Norm reminds me of my father and his cronies The regulars at the town meetings feel like people I ve met before Loretta s children Melissa and Jake both have a depth and a charm that makes me care about themI read the The Fine Colour of Rust while I was travelling from Cairns to Taree and back again Many times I laughed out loud particularly at the dialogue causing my fellow travellers to shift in their seats with looks that clearly said mad woman alert I stopped reading several times because I knew I was close to tears Being considered a little nutty is fine but I know a weeping woman makes others uncomfortable and I didn t want to have to explain myself It was too complicated for thatThe characters are stereotypical and yet they are uniue They are so much than cliches I cared about them I laughed with them and I cried with them They lingered in my mind long after I finished the story and I ve been forcing the book onto friends and relatives ever sinceIt s Loretta s ability to be wryly amused by everything including herself and several disasters that takes the story from depressing to uplifting I gather The Fine Colour of Rust started life as a short story I m very glad Paddy O Reilly decided to explore a little or I would have missed out on meeting Loretta and the good folk of GunapanThe Fine Colour of Rust

Summary The Fine Colour of Rust

Download ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ¾ P.A. OReilly P.A. OReilly ¾ 7 Free read Summary The Fine Colour of Rust F she took a wrong turn somewhere If only she could drop the kids at the orphanage and start over But now thanks to her protest letters the education minister is coming to Gunapan and she has to convince him to change his mind about the school closure And as if facing down the government isn’t enough it soon becomes clear that the school isn’t the only local spot in trouble In the drought stricken bushland on the outskirts of town a luxury resort development is about to. It s always a good feeling when a book you ve been looking forward to reading meets your expectations Everything about The Fine Colour of Rust worked for me the familiar country town landscape the eccentric characters the small town political intrigue and the ups and downs of family relationships particularly the all too typical self absorbed deadbeat dad who is keen to leave his former family behind There are some scenes that are absolute gems the minister s tour of the butcher s abattoir to see the champion meat slicer and dicer at work was hilarious However the author is eually adept at writing tougher emotional scenes without descending into mawkishness O Reilly s writing is authentic and honest with good pacing and lots of love for her characters even the dickhead ones The main character single mum of two Loretta is one I absolutely empathised with and her dry self effacing humour drives the narrative It s a very Australian novel and yet the universal themes of friendship community and fighting against the odds for the little guy will resonate with readers from all over Highly recommended

Loretta the story s heroine and narrator is brilliantly conveyed in her humour failings and courage Her small town home is portrayed with an awareness of its shortcomings and yet celebrates a sense of communityI m not sure how to phrase my response to this novel reviewing is a tough gigThe thing is the theme of The Fine Colour of Rust seems to me to be desperation you know the rust breaking through But if I say that you ll think the book is depressing and it s not The book is funny and I know this word is overused heartwarmingI enjoyed the book s style I could smell the dust feel the heat hear my neighbours in the characters conversation though I confess I m a suburbanite not a country dweller most Australians are The Fine Colour of Rust felt like an honest conversation with a friend A wonderful read
