The Rain Heron by [Australian] Robbie Arnott has been described as an eco-fable, a parable and myth. In the style of magical realism the story brings together Ren - a failed farmer, now living as a hermit in the mountains; Zoe - growing up on the coast, harvesting ink from squid with her aunt; and Daniel - a young medic, joining the army after a brutal coup. The evocative descriptions of the land and seascapes add further dimensions to a compelling story in which the characters, in turn, attempt to find - and hide - the mythical Rain Heron.
