Book Review: When It Rains by Maggie MacKellar - Reviewed by flick p (29 Jul 2011)
This is a beautiful book and it's beautifully written. The author takes us through her journey of loss, grief, bereavement, despair and anger as she struggles to come to terms with, first, her husband's suicide (while pregnant with their second child) and then her mother's death from cancer two years later. She is heart-wrenchingly honest in her descriptions of her emotions as she eventually decides that salvation, for her, lies in her return to the countryside of her childhood. It takes courage to throw away a prestigious academic post to face the unknown, and we walk every step of the way with the author as she painfully bonds with the earth that nurtured her childhood and begins the road to recovery. Highly recommended.
Maggie MacKellar was born in 1973. She has published two books on the history of settlement in Australia and Canada. She now lives in central western New South Wales with her two children.
