Exploring fear in fiction - Leah Swann
Sheerwater by Melbourne author Leah Swann is one of those books that I think about often…long after I read it.
In 2021 I was on the judging panel for Sisters in Crime Australia’s Davitt Awards. Sheerwater was one of the many crime books we read by Australian women authors and it ended up winning the award for best debut novel. It’s a tense, emotional story of a woman called Ava whose two young sons go missing when she stops to help at the sight of a light plane crash. Ava and her sons were on their way to a new life in a small coastal town. The reasons unfold as the story progresses.
