A woman running from her past rents a lonely cottage haunted by drowned lovers and the presence of the sea. Here - amongst the local writers and conservationists, the Aborigines, fishermen, ferals and drifters - Jessica Sorensen almost loses her life and then remakes it. In this haunted and haunting story, Dorothy Hewett has written a novel about love and loss and the endless drift of the tides.
'A spectacular novel of romance from the dangerous edges of the land and the sea.'
'Highly original, compelling, a passionately lyrical dreamscape of a novel.'
