Amid the strange, silent aftermath of World War II, a widow, a poet, and a doctor search for lasting peace and fresh beginnings in this internationally acclaimed, award-winning novel.

When Anikka Lachlan's husband, Mac, is killed in a railway accident, she is offered - and accepts - a job at the Railway Institute's library and searches there for some solace in her unexpectedly new life. But in Thirroul in 1948, she's not the only person trying to chase dreams through books. There's Roy McKinnon, who found poetry in the mess of war but who has now lost his words and his hope. There's Frank Draper, trapped by the guilt of those his medical treatment and care failed on their first day of freedom. All three struggle to find their own peace and their own new stories.

But along with the firming of this triangle of friendship and a sense of lives inching toward renewal come other extremities - and misunderstandings. In the end love and freedom can have unexpected ways of expressing themselves.

The Railwayman's Wife explores the power of beginnings and endings and how hard it can sometimes be to tell them apart. Most of all it celebrates love in all its forms and the beauty of discovering that loving someone can be as extraordinary as being loved yourself.
