In praise of ABERASH: A Mysterious Land Downunder: 

“In this novel, Helene Smith takes the reader on a journey with twins Lori and Cade exploring the nature of love, freedom, forgiveness, trust, the triumph of the human spirit, and the power of finding one’s true voice amongst the blue sky and the stars. Helene captures the magic of the natural landscape of South West Western Australia, and weaves a rich tapestry of song, language, dreams, and symbols, reminding us that when you face pain and difficulty head on, and keep a bit of yourself for yourself, truth and love will prevail, and solace can always be found in the hot springs of now. I laughed and I sobbed and my heart cracked open.” Review by Julie Savage
