About the Book

‘This novel belongs to the Tim Winton school of Western Australian writing in its loving depiction of landscapes, the sea and all therein, and its emphasis on positive family values and the shoals and eddies of life.’ — Canberra Times.

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

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.
