Nights in the Asylum by Carol Lefevre
Book DescriptionCatastrophe can turn a comfortable life inside out and leave any one of us stranded, dependent on the kindness of strangers, or vulnerable to their cruelty - as the characters in this sensuous and moving novel discover. Set in a mining town in the Australian outback, NIGHTS IN THE ASYLUM is the story of three people seeking shelter. Stricken with grief and guilt following the death of her daughter, Miri flees the city for the quiet calm of Havana Gardens, a once fine but now dilapidated mansion built for her grandmother. On the road, she rescues Aziz, an Afghan refugee on the run from detention; then, in the attic of the old house, Miri discovers Suzette Moran and her baby daughter hiding, and grants them refuge. Slowly, in the hot confined spaces of the house, the three runaways unravel their stories, but when Suzette's policeman husband comes looking for her, it sparks a chain of events that will disrupt their already fragile peace.

Author Biography - Carol Lefevre
Carol Lefevre grew up in the Australian outback and although most of her adult life has been passed in cities and in countries far from home, the outback landscape remains a persistent presence and inspiration. She has worked as a singer, a barmaid, nanny, and writer for glossy lifestyle magazines. But whatever she happens to be working at, her real job is always writing. In 2005 Carol graduated from the University of Adelaide with an MA in Creative Writing. She lives between the Isle of Man and Adelaide, South Australia, where she combines freelance writing and photography with doctoral studies. www.carollefevre.com
