A sharply humorous tale of romantic love and cultural warfare.

When Jo Breen uses her divorce settlement to buy a neglected farm in the Byron Bay hinterland, she is hoping for a tree change, and a blossoming connection to the land of her Aboriginal ancestors. What she discovers instead is sharp dissent from her teenage daughter Ellen, trouble brewing from unimpressed white neighbours, and a looming Native Title war among the local Bundjalung families. When Jo stumbles into love on one side of the Native Title divide she quickly learns that living on country is only part of the recipe for the Good Life.

Melissa Lucashenko's Mullumbimby is a modern novel set against an ancient land.
