Description

In Cassetown, Geologue Bay, Iris and her extended family – her ex-husband and his wife and their new baby; her son and her best friend’s daughter – gather on a midwinter long weekend, to pack up the family holiday house now that it has been sold. They are together for one last time, one last weekend, one last party. As the house is stripped bare, their secrets – and the complex, messy nature of family relationships – will be revealed.
The Hope Fault is a novel about extended family: about steps and exes and fairy godmothers; about parents and partners who are missing, and the people who replace them.
Reviews
‘Tracy Farr’s quietly brilliant second novel … is an accomplished, immersive, moving book. Highly recommended’ New Zealand Listener
‘Beautifully restrained … I recommend it highly. It is smart writing, it’s thoughtful and nuanced. It’s respectful of the reader, it lets you fill in the gaps, and it lets you leave gaps unfilled … It feels very much like home.’ Radio New Zealand
‘With its forgiving examination of relationships, The Hope Fault is a book for parents and unconventional families’ Books+Publishing
