A hauntingly beautiful love story about the ties that bind from award winning author, Simone Lazaroo. Elspeth is full of inexpressible longings- to leave behind her beginnings in a small wheatbelt town, and a secret she scarcely comprehends. After migrating from Singapore, Francis just wants to make a life for himself that is not determined by the colour of his skin or the judgement of others. Told by their only child, Eva, this is a novel about falling in love, and falling apart - the beautiful, sad story of a shared history that never ends.
