Summary
The characters in these unsettling stories, of which there are six short and two long, want things that run counter to their sense of themselves. They're drawn outside their comfort zone into situations that are sometimes amusing, sometimes undignifying, never quite what they expect

Summary
It's 1957 and, after the death of her husband, pianist Ilona Talivaldis and her nine-year-old daughter Zidra, travel to the remote coastal town of Jingera in New South Wales. Ilona, a concentration camp survivor from Latvia, is searching for peace and the opportunity to start anew. In her beautiful vine-covered cottage on the edge of the lagoon, she has plans to set herself up as a piano teacher. The weeks pass and slowly mother and daughter get to know the townsfolk including kind-hearted butcher George Cadwallader, who is forever gazing at the stars; his son Jim, a boy wise beyond his years; Peter Vincent, former wartime pilot and prisoner-of-war; and Cherry Bates, the publican's wife who is about to make a horrifying discovery. For Jingera is not quite the utopia Ilona imagines it to be, and at risk is the one thing Ilona holds dear.
