AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'An Australian soldier in British service parachutes into the roaring embattled skies of the night before D-Day, and lands in a vast lake of flooded fields. His encounter with a mysterious woman who seems to rule that water world deflects him from the war and from all the promise his life had seemed to hold. A strange and compelling book.' (Publisher's blurb)

Notes

  • Launched by John Clanchy at Dalton's Books, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, 9 September 2009.
  • Epigraph: Muse of the unique

    Historical fact, defending with silence

    Some world of your beholding, a silence

    No explosion can conquer but a lover's Yes

    Has been known to fill.

    W.H. Auden, 'Homage to Clio'
