Publisher's Summary

Winner of the Australian Bookseller's Choice Award, this is a modern Australian classic set in Tasmania.
In 1954, in a construction camp for a hydroelectric dam in the remote Tasmanian highlands, Bojan Buloh had brought his family to start a new life away from Slovenia, the privations of war, and refugee settlements. One night, Bojan's wife walked off into a blizzard, never to return - leaving Bojan to drink too much to quiet his ghosts, and to care for his three-year-old daughter, Sonja, alone.
Thirty-five years later, Sonja returns to Tasmania and a father haunted by memories of the European war and other, more recent horrors. As the shadows of the past begin to intrude ever more forcefully into the present, Sonja's empty life and her father's living death are to change forever.

Far from easy listening

But don't let that turn you off. Great read but complex. A library keeper for re-listening from time to time. Like a good wine I think it will grow on those with the tenacity to go the distance.
