Once There Were Wolves

By Charlotte McConaghy
Narrated by: Saskia Maarleveld
Length: 8 hours 27 minutes

If you enjoyed The Dog Stars, then you’ll love Once There Were Wolves.

“Inti has always relied on tough, talkative Aggie, whether they're with one parent surviving in the wilderness of North America or with the other, a tough cop in Australia. Her sense of security, constantly undermined by her rare neurological disorder - a tactile form of synaesthesia, is fragile at best. We can all relate to Inti's growing fears she faces a parent's illness, her sister's change from strong one to frail one, and the ecological fight of a lifetime. The murder that threatens to undermine her professional project makes Inti question all her certainties (and keeps us guessing until the end!). Like in Mandel's Station Eleven, Heller's The Dog Stars, and McConaghy's earlier novel Migrations, beautiful descriptions of landscapes and tough, edgy questions about ecology enrich a story of a main character searching for strength and trust in a world of disaster, and Inti's story, with its rich parallel themes (book clubs, listen up!) and thriller-speed plot twists, will appeal to a variety of readers.”
