In the Press

Rosanne Hawke is an author of integrity who writes irresistible adrenaline-filled stories to explore important inner and external dilemmas and boundaries.

This is a beautiful story of growing up, loyalty and the amazing stength and resilience of families. The heart of this story is that we all need to know that we are loved and where we belong, and Finding Kerra does a wonderful job of showing this.

Rosanne Hawke often writes movingly of relocation. She is able to engage the feelings of the reader as the main character goes through the trauma of separation and removal.
