The Yield by Tara June Winch – Book Review

A man whose live is nearing its end who wants to record the language and stories of his people for future generations. A woman returning home to to mourn him, her grandfather, and discovers that her town is about to be taken over by a mining company. The letters of a settler bringing his religion to the town and coming across unexpected challenges.

The Yield tells these three stories, stories which are separate but connected. It’s a beautiful book and a wonderfully told tale.

The Yield won the 2020 Stella Prize.
