Synopsis

"Michaela Roessner's Walkabout Woman has got it all: clean, lyric prose; a fascinating 'alien' setting juxtaposed with a contemporary one; and a guise of Mystery not often seen before. There is a power in Roessner's prose and a simplicity that's as beguiling and deceptive as that of her subjects themselves.... it provides the reader with a thoughtful, as well as entertaining read, and allows the epilogue to acquire a poignancy that's both uplifting for how things work out in this otherworld, and a sadness that it won't do so in this one." — OtherRealms

Walkabout Woman is indeed a daring and innovative first novel... Beyond its setting, the strength of this work lies in its vivid depiction of the relation of the Dreamtime to ‘real life', in the characterization of Raba, and in the incisive parallel drawn between the loss of the Welsh Annwyn and the impending fate of the aborigines... it is a book to be read, and then read again." — Book Review Annual
