This is my "F" book:

Feather Man by Rhyll McMaster

Synopsis from cover:

Set in Brisbane during the stultifying 1950s and moving to grubby London in the 1970s, Feather Man is about Sooky who, ignored and misunderstood by her parents, is encouraged to make herself scarce and visit Lionel, their elderly next door neighbor.

Following Sooky from her neglected childhood to womanhood and her entry into the art world, the book combines comedy with emotional intensity.  When Sooky's attraction to Redmond leads her to London, her past follows her into the future with a deadly confrontation.

I read this awhile ago. I had trouble getting into it but I skipped ahead about 30 pages and was able to get into it. It is very powerful at times
