About the Book

Joe lives with his wife and son on a property pioneered by his grandparents. It is a place he has returned to, the country of his childhood. There, he is troubled and intrigued by the past. Change grips him and threatens to break him away from everything he has been anchored to. A lyrical and moving novel about belonging and place.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

‘ … a remarkable debut, an intelligent pageturner that cuts to the heart of love and loneliness.’ The West Australian.
