About the Book

Kate is an outsider and way out of her depth in the desert community, searching for the Aboriginal woman who can reveal to her the oldest song in the world.
Kate, a lonely city woman and reluctant student, is asked by her teachers to travel to the middle of the Australian desert to record a dying Aboriginal woman singing an ancient song. She accepts because she believes that she might be able to reunite with a childhood love and solve the mystery of her past. But once there, she's confronted by an Aboriginal culture vastly different to her own, and also by the forceful personality of the man who is supposed to help her find the singer. Very soon she is questioning everything she has ever felt about her own country and about her childhood. Sensitively portrayed, lyrical, and full of insights about people's diverse sense of home, belonging and family, the Oldest Song in the World is a brave and controversial story about discovering the power of one's own voice and taking heed of the voice of others. Sensitively portrayed, lyrical, and filled with powerful insights about different people's sense of home and belonging and family, tHE OLDESt SONG IN tHE WORLD is a brave and controversial story about discovering the power of one's own voice and taking care to pay attention to the voice of others.
