The Lakewoman

By Alan Gould

A moving love story that is also a deeply absorbing poetic meditation on the moral journey of a solitary man. A brilliant achievement.
Alex Miller


An Australian soldier in British service parachutes into the roaring embattled skies of the night before D-Day, and lands in a vast lake of flooded fields. His encounter with a mysterious woman who seems to rule that water world deflects him from the war and from all the promise his life had seemed to hold. This is a strange and compelling novel.
Les Murray

The Lakewoman has been shortlisted for the fiction category of the 2010 Prime Minister's Literary Awards, the 2010 ACT Book of the Year Award, and the 2009 Colin Roderick Award!
