The Girl and the Ghost-Grey Mare

by Rachael Treasure

A dairy farmer’s daughter searches for love in a city pub; a grieving widow heals her heart and her community; a cheated wife finds the ultimate revenge.

The Girl and the Ghost-Grey Mare features stories full of warmth and heart and humour, and with characters as diverse and colourful as the Australian countryside itself.

Laugh and smile your way through this book, which includes the favourites ‘The Girl and the Ghost-Grey Mare’ and ‘The Evolution of Sadie Smith’, as well as some new stories never before published in book form. So sit back and enjoy the special ‘Treasure’ take on the world.

‘Treasure writes with true grit, wit and warmth.’  Australian Women’s Weekly

‘At her best, and within the framework of the modern romance tale, Treasure is a storyteller in the tradition of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales: down-to-earth, bawdy, satirical, and entertaining.’ Australian Book Review
