The Fine Colour of Rust
If you loved A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian, you’:ll love The Fine Colour of Rust.
Single mother Loretta Boskovic may have fantasies about dumping her two kids in the orphanage and riding off on a Harley with her dream lover, but her reality is life in a dusty country town called Gunapan.
A self-dubbed ‘:old scrag’:, Loretta’:s got a big heart and a strong sense of injustice. So, when Gunapan’:s primary school is threatened with closure, and there’:s a whiff of corruption wafting through the corridors of the local council, she stirs into action. She's short of money, influence and a fully functioning car, but she does have loyal friends who’:ll do whatever it takes to hold on to the scrap of world that is home.
The Fine Colour of Rust is a wryly funny, beautifully observed, life-affirming novel about friendship, love and fighting for things that matter. In Loretta Boskovic, Paddy O’:Reilly (writing as P A O'Reilly) has created a truly endearing heroine who gives us all permission to dream.
