WINNER OF THE 2019 VICTORIAN PREMIER'S LITERARY AWARD FOR FICTION Shortlisted for the Edward Stanford Award 2019 Walter Scott Prize Academy Recommended 1923, north-eastern Italy: Maria Vittoria's father has left the village to find her a husband. He has taken his mule, a pack of food and a photograph of Maria. There are no eligible men in this valley, or the next one, and her father will not allow her to marry just anyone. Just as Fascism blooms in the country, the crops ripen, and the state demands babies - a new generation. There is much work to be done, and Maria faces a stony path, but one she will surely climb to the summit.
