AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The south-west coast is the kind of place people escape to. Unless you have lived there all your life, in which case, you long to get away.

'Rosie and Cray chuck in their city jobs for Margaret River while Liza, Ferg and Sam have been there forever, working the family farm. Under pressure from developers the families unite against change. But when a natural disaster strikes, change is inevitable.' (Publication summary)

  • The events described in this book have their climax in a fictional reimagining of the Gracetown cliff collapse, which occurred at Huzza’s Beach on 27 September 1996, and claimed the lives of nine people from a local school. To date, the Gracetown cliff collapse is Western Australia’s worst natural disaster. (Source: publisher's website)
