Early Comments

I’m thrilled to have received these comments from early readers:


A heartbreaking tale, beautifully told ... Magical.

Kathryn Stockett, Author of 'The Help'

Beautifully captivating, beginning to end. A heroine's story of family redemption and love beyond boundaries

Jane Hoppen, Author, 'In Between'

The Woolgrowers' Companion evokes a vivid wartime Australia with fidelity and sensitivity

Prof. Peter Stanley, UNSW, Prime Minister's Prize for History 2011

In The Woolgrower's Companion, Joy Rhoades pulls off the novelist’s greatest challenge, confronting readers with surprises that - however shocking - are inevitable.

Peter Selgin, winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award for Fiction, and author of The Inventors, a memoir.

Joy Rhoades took a hold of my heart and squeezed it tight – a wonderful debut that is both un-put-downable and deeply moving.

Julie Gibbs, Publisher

Utterly compelling The Woolgrower’s Companion draws you in, layer by layer, until by hand and heart, you live in the world on the page.

Posie Grame Evans, novelist most recently of Wild Wood

An incredibly well written story that will make you laugh, cry and everything in between.

Erin Woodward, Global Founder, thegirlybookclub.com

In a word, wonderful.

Jeffrey Renard Allen, novelist, most recently of Song of the Shank
