About Ora's Gold
If the state had sovereignty over your body, would you fight them for it or would you submit?
18-year-old Ora has always followed the rules unlike her aunt Dione, who is fond of breaking them. When Ora moves in with her, in the middle of nowhere, she discovers the B&B is in fact, a highly illegal birthing centre. Ora doesn't know where to turn; sooner or later someone is going to die and Dione just won't listen.
After an anonymous tip-off, Dione goes missing and Ora narrowly escapes being locked up by the Special Investigation Force forever. The beach is her only sanctuary and it's here that she meets Jake, thoughtful and experienced, who encourages her to live a little. So why is it that as soon as she starts to have some fun, everything goes dangerously wrong?
Ora's Gold is a gripping, coming-of-age, dystopia set in Australia. The female characters are a refreshing mix of strength, vulnerability and wisdom.
“Great coming of age story, edge-of-your-seat writing, heartwarming, sweet, sad – everything really! Highly recommended for adults and older teens (a few sex scenes – mildly graphic, and adult/older teen situations).”
