“Australian writer Kate Veitch brings readers another powerful novel with this story of a woman determined to allow herself to grow with her art while raising her family and taking care of her husband in the traditional way. After a car accident brings tragedy to her family, Susanna comes to terms with how fragile and fleeting life can be and puts her mind to becoming the artist she wants to be. Without being just another book about a woman who is unhappy in life, Trust demonstrates that strength and perseverance can help one get to where they truly want to be in life.”
