Nest by Inga Simpson
Book DescriptionOnce an artist and teacher, Jen now spends her time watching the birds around her house and tending her lush sub-tropical garden near the small town where she grew up. The only person she sees regularly is Henry, who comes after school for drawing lessons. When a girl in Henry's class goes missing, Jen is pulled back into the depths of her own past. When she was Henry's age she lost her father and her best friend Michael - both within a week. The whole town talked about it then, and now, nearly forty years later, they're talking about it again. Everyone is waiting - for the girl to be found and the summer rain to arrive. At last, when the answers do come, like the wet, it is in a drenching, revitalising downpour...

“…the moments that most change your life, you never see coming. Your position, from deep within the movement – the shift itself – does not permit a clear view.” Nest is the second novel by Australian author, Inga Simpson. In retreat from a fractured relationship, and the loss of her mother, Jen Vogel returns to the Queensland coastal hinterland town of her childhood. Once an artist and teacher, she now tries to live in harmony with her environment, on the edge of the forest, surrounded by her beloved birds, her inspiration: “Sometimes pencil on paper was a magical thing – and birds flew out. Other times they were just marks, her hand an inadequate tool”…… “How could she hope to draw such weightlessness, such grace, such joy.” Weekly visits by young Henry Green for an art lesson punctuate her solitary existence and deliver regular contact with the outside world. When a classmate of Henry’s goes missing, the talk in town immediately recalls...
