With beautiful, clear-eyed insight, Murmurations charts lives edging towards revelation or despair. The women at the heart of these stories have the poise and mystery of figures in paintings. We're drawn into intimacy with them through the grace of Carol Lefevre's benevolent vision and quietly assured prose.-Michelle de Kretser
