A heart-warming, thoroughly entertaining novel about a whole community.
'This is the perfect read for this time of year when we're still happy to escape into a good book at the beach or under a shade tree and take the time to savour, in this instance, the leisurely revelation of the people who live in Gabriel's Bay. Gabriel's Bay has once again lifted [Robertson's] writing to a new level, exhibiting a true flair for inhabiting an ambitious range of characters and revealing the nuances and intricacies of a small-town milieu with deftness, grace, and sympathy. Yet she never loses that witty insight that makes each character's journey of rediscovery, self-realisation and second chances feel very real.' -- Felicity Price, Stuff
