Publisher's Summary

Once an artist and teacher, Jen now spends her time watching the birds around her house and tending her lush, subtropical garden near the small town where she grew up. The only person she sees regularly is Henry, who comes after school for drawing lessons.

When a girl in Henry's class goes missing, Jen is pulled back into the depths of her own past. When she was Henry's age, she lost her father and her best friend, Michael - both within a week. The whole town talked about it then, and now, nearly 40 years later, they're talking about it again. Everyone is waiting - for the girl to be found and the summer rain to arrive.

At last, when the answers do come, like the wet, it is in a drenching, revitalising downpour.

Nest was longlisted for the Stella Prize 2015.
