About this event

I heard voices talking last night. I've never heard my father talk to

someone else. Not that I can remember. I was in bed, and I heard my

father's voice first. He was talking to someone, and then I heard

another man with a deep voice. The man got angry, I could tell, even

though I couldn't hear exactly what he was saying. Then my father

said, 'I'd kill you first.'

On his eleventh birthday, Jacob's father gives him a diary. To write

about things that happen. About what he and his father do on their

farm. About the sheep, the crop, the fox and the dam. But Jacob

knows some things should not be written down. Some things should

not be rIemembered.

The only things he knows for sure is what his father has taught him.

Sheltered, protected, isolated. But who is his father protecting him

from? And how far will his father go to keep the world at bay?

All too soon, Jacob will learn that sometimes we all have to do

terrible things.

Books will be available to purchase and be signed on the night.

Limited numbers are in place for social distancing, so if you are then unable to attend please advise the Library as soon as possible.
