A masterful novel by the prize-winning author of The Night Guest and The High Places, an epic tale of revelation, history, myth, love and art.

In September 1883, the South Australian town of Fairly huddles under strange, vivid sunsets. Six-year-old Denny Wallace has gone missing during a dust storm, and the whole town is intent on finding him. As they search the desert and mountains for the lost child, the residents of Fairly—newlyweds, landowners, farmers, mothers, artists, Indigenous trackers, cameleers, children, schoolteachers, widows, maids, policemen—explore their own relationships with the complex landscape and unsettling history of the Flinders Ranges. The colonial Australia of The Sun Walks Down is unfamiliar, multicultural, and noisy with opinions, arguments, longings and terrors. It’s haunted by many gods—the sun among them, rising and falling on each day that Denny could be found, or lost forever.

‘The Sun Walks Down is an exceptional, multi-layered historical novel with a beautifully styled plot. The power with which Fiona McFarlane evokes the place and time is extraordinary – a gorgeously written book.’
Evie Wyld, author of The Bass Rock

‘The Sun Walks Down is, quite simply, the best novel I've ever read about 19th century Australia. A tense search for a lost child unfolds with rising dread against a landscape of harsh and radiant beauty, amid lives as tangled as barbed wire.’
Geraldine Brooks, bestselling author

'Impressive ... McFarlane is in complete control.' (on The Night Guest)
