Event Details

It is 1956, and twelve-year old Gin has arrived at the family farm, 'Grasswood', in the South West of Western Australia. She has been left in the care of her lively, idiosyncratic aunt, Attie, while her mother, an English war bride, returns home for a holiday. Gin is the youngest of three generations of very different women, whose lives are profoundly affected by the absence of Jasper: son, brother, husband, father. A fixed point in all their lives is the landscape, layered with beauty and fear, challenge and consolation, isolation and freedom.

Beautifully written, Finding Jasper is an acute, sensitive search for love and a sense of self in a rapidly changing world.

Lynne Leonhardt portrait

Lynne Leonhardt was born in the South West of Western Australia and grew up on an orchard in a small rural community. As a young adult, she worked overseas, travelling extensively during an extended six-year period. She later spent four years in the Riverina District of New South Wales. An affinity for creative arts saw her take up tertiary studies in music and English literature while raising four children. For many years she has lived in Perth, Western Australia, but enjoys retreating with her husband to the natural beauty of the South West whenever she can. This is her first novel.
