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.
