When Jo Breen uses her divorce settlement to buy a neglected property in the Byron Bay hinterland, she is hoping for a tree change, and a blossoming connection to the land of her Aboriginal ancestors. What she discovers instead is sharp dissent from her teenage daughter, trouble brewing from unimpressed white neighbors, and a looming Native Title war between the local Bundjalung families.

When Jo unexpectedly finds love on one side of the Native Title divide she quickly learns that living on country is only part of the recipe for the Good Life.

Told with dark humor and a sharp, satirical eye, Mullumbimby is a modern novel about romantic love and cultural warfare set against an ancient land.

Lucashenko's first book Steam Pigs won the l998 Dobbie Award for Women’s Fiction and was shortlisted for the l999 New South Wales Premier’s fiction award.
