When Josie is sent to Digger Town to conduct her doctoral research, she knows it is a strange place with a strange history. There, the people use no modern technologies, wear nineteenth-century clothing, drive nothing faster than a horse-and-cart, and hand-make all their goods. Even so, she is not prepared for what she finds. An intriguing tale of secrecy, politics and religious and racial intolerance.

The Bloodwood Clan is a sociological thriller in which [Fletcher's] growing experience as a writer is obvious in the tight pace of the narrative and all that is left unsaid.Margie Thomson, Weekend Herald
