Fanny and Gérard fall in love in a way that surprises even them as their lives fill with good sex and loving companionship. But they long for a child to complete their happiness. So begins Valley of Grace, a stunning collection of interwoven stories set in modern-day Paris. When Gérard buys a beautiful old house in the suburbs, the disturbing contents of the attic binds the stories into an intriguing and darkly disturbing knot. A lyrical work full of hope and children, written by one of Australia’s best-loved novelists at the height of her powers. Savour it.
