One Sunday | [Joy Dettman]

One Sunday

Early one Sunday, the town of Molliston wakes to the news that a young bride is dead. The year is 1929. The Great War with Germany has been fought and won, but at an immense cost to the small community. Death is too familiar here. So many sons were lost. So many daughters would never be wives; so many grandchildren would never be born. Racial hatred is like a bushfire in the belly of some. And the dead girl is found only yards from the property of old Joe Reichenberg, a German..

Audible Editor Reviews

Voice actor Diedre Rubenstein performs Joy Dettman’s intense One Sunday, a chilling story about the lingering aftereffects of war and the passions and prejudices that can lurk beneath any apparently sedate small town.

Rubenstein’s rich performance emphasizes the intricate construction of this complex novel, which tracks the aftermath of a shocking death which townspeople, still grieving for sons and fathers lost at the Battle of Gallipoli, are primed to blame on a lonely German man whose property the body was discovered near. Rubenstein has a stern but compelling voice perfectly suited to Dettman’s complicated subject matter, and the existential questions dredged up in this gripping audiobook.

Publisher's Summary

A novel of small-town survival ... and a train that arrived too late.

Early one Sunday, the town of Molliston wakes to the news that a young bride is dead. The year is 1929. The Great War with Germany has been fought and won, but at an immense cost to the small community. Death is too familiar here. So many sons were lost. So many daughters would never be wives; so many grandchildren would never be born. Racial hatred is like a bushfire in the belly of some. And the dead girl is found only yards from the property of old Joe Reichenberg, a German.

Tom Thompson, the local cop, lost his two sons in Gallipoli. He believes he has come to terms with his bereavement - until that Sunday. Slowly, the true face of Molliston is exposed. By midnight, a full moon is offering its light - and a glimmer of hope.
