Evie Wyld - After ​the Fire, a Still Small Voice
After ​the departure of the woman he loves, Frank struggles to rebuild his life among the sugarcane and sand dunes that surround his oceanside shack. Forty years earlier, Leon is drafted to serve in Vietnam and finds himself suddenly confronting the same experiences that haunt his war-veteran father. As these two stories weave around each other—each narrated in a voice as tender as it is fierce—we learn what binds Frank and Leon together, and what may end up keeping them apart. ___Set in the unforgiving landscape of eastern Australia, Evie Wyld’s accomplished debut tackles the inescapability of the past, the ineffable ties of family, and the wars fought by fathers and sons.

Evie Wyld - The ​Bass Rock
Surging ​out of the sea, the Bass Rock has for centuries watched over the lives that pass under its shadow on the Scottish mainland. And across the centuries the fates of three women are linked: to this place, to each other. In the early 1700s, Sarah, accused of being a witch, flees for her life. In the aftermath of the Second World War, Ruth navigates a new house, a new husband and the strange waters of the local community. Six decades later, the house stands empty. Viv, mourning the death of her father, catalogues Ruth's belongings and discovers her place in the past - and perhaps a way forward. Each woman's choices are circumscribed, in ways big and small, by the men in their lives. But in sisterhood there is the hope of survival and new life. Intricately crafted and compulsively readable, The Bass Rock burns bright with anger and love.

Evie Wyld - All ​the Birds, Singing
Jake ​Whyte is the sole resident of an old farmhouse on an unnamed British island, a place of ceaseless rains and battering winds. It’s just her, her untamed companion, Dog, and a flock of sheep. Which is how she wanted it to be. But something is coming for the sheep – every few nights it picks one off, leaves it in rags. It could be anything. There are foxes in the woods, a strange boy and a strange man, rumours of an obscure, formidable beast. And there is Jake’s unknown past, perhaps breaking into the present, a story hidden thousands of miles away and years ago, in a landscape of different colour and sound, a story held in the scars that stripe her back. All the Birds, Singing tells the life of an outsider. With extreme artistry and empathy, it reveals an existence of diurnal beauty, incremental horrors, stubborn hope and tentative redemption. The result is a novel of indelible emotional force.

Evie Wyld - Ha ​minden madár énekel
Jake ​Whyte, az Ausztráliából érkezett fiatal nő magányosan él egy öreg tanyán, valahol egy meg nem nevezett brit szigeten, ahol szüntelenül esik az eső és fúj a szél. Van egy társa, a neveletlen Kutya, és van egy birkanyája. De éjszakánként valami előjön az erdőből, és öldösi a birkáit. Akármi lehet. Talán az erdőben élő rókák, vagy az a furcsa fiú a szomszédból? Egy ismeretlen, félelmetes vadállatról is hallani. Avagy a szörnyű titkokat rejtő múlt kísért? Mi késztet egy lányt arra, hogy egy elhagyatott tanyán, sok ezer kilométerre a szülőföldjétől magányosan éljen? Miféle tragikus titkokat hordoz a lelkében, mi elől menekül, és miről tanúskodnak a hátán soha be nem gyógyuló hegek? S mi köze mindennek az eltűnő birkákhoz? Számos díjjal jutalmazott, gyönyörűen megírt, fordulatos történet egy különleges női sorsról, erőről és a nehezen megszerezhető megnyugvásról.
