8 BEREfT cHRIS WoMeRSley Bereft is an eloquently written and suspense-filled story that is difficult to put down. The story is set in 1919 in country New South Wales where the Walker family are torn apart by a despicable crime. The reader is taken on young Quinn Walker’s life journey through the first world war in Europe, and back home to a post-war Australia ravished by the Spanish flu. Chris Womersley has entwined all the elements of a great crime story. Bereft is a roller coaster ride of love, grief, suspense and finally justice, beautifully held together with a touch of mythology and the spirit world.
