Time's Long Ruin by Stephen Orr

Book Description

Nine-year-old Henry Page is a club-footed, deep-thinking loner, spending his summer holidays reading, roaming the melting streets of his suburb, playing with his best friend Janice, and her younger brother and sister. Until one day Janice asks Henry to spend the day at the beach with them. He declines, a decision that will stay with him forever. Time's Long Ruin is based loosely on the disappearance of the Beaumont children from Glenelg beach on Australia Day, 1966. It's a novel about friendship, love and loss; a story about those left behind, and how they carry on.

They would have to find other ways of observing the Rileys’ suffering, of tasting their despair without swallowing it, of hearing and smelling and touching what they’d all known in imperceptibly small doses. 7A was a nightmare. A fairytale. A morality tale. A horror story with wilting agapanthus”

Time’s Long Ruin is the third novel by award-winning Australian author, Stephen Orr. During Adelaide’s oven-hot summer of 1960, nine-year-old Henry Page and his best friend (and next-door-neighbour) Janice Riley fill their days with hide-and-seek, cricket, reading, writing stories and visits to the beach.
