The Red Coast

$9.99 Regular price $19.99

Di Morrissey returns to the red earth of the Kimberley with a passionate story of resistance and resilience under its soaring blue skies.

After the upheaval which separated Jacqui Bouchard from her beloved son, she has finally settled in Broome, a magical remote town on the northwest coast of Australia.

But when a proposed mining development is unveiled, the town begins to tear itself apart. Rifts run deep, as friends, families and lovers are faced with a battle that could change their lives irrevocably.

As everyone takes sides, Jacqui confronts her own dilemma: to stay or leave? Who to trust... who to love?


Di Morrissey is one of the most successful and prolific authors Australia has ever produced. She trained as a journalist, working in newspapers, magazines, television, film, theatre and advertising around the world. Her fascination with different countries - their cultural, political and environmental issues - has been the catalyst for her novels, which are all inspired by a particular landscape. 
Di has been a tireless and passionate advocate and activist for many causes. She established The Golden Land Education Foundation in Myanmar (Burma). She publishes and edits a free community newspaper.
In 2017, in recognition of her achievements, Di was inducted into the Australian Book Industry Awards Hall of Fame.
