After the runaway success of her first two novels, Adelaide’s own Hannah Kent returns with Devotion, a story of the 19th Century Lutherans who migrated from Prussia to South Australia via a dangerous sea voyage. There are many types of love empathetically drawn – mothers and daughters, sibling and friends – but at the heart of the novel is the love story between narrator Hanne and her friend Thea. Hanne can hear nature’s music, and in this lush lyrical book, it becomes the poignant score to her great, majestic love.
