AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Three women, facing uncertain futures, form an unlikely friendship in Australia's remote opal fields. Kerrie, in her 40s, has just lost her famous sculptor husband who had been the centre of her existence and for whom she made many sacrifices and she now finds her life has lost direction. Shirley, approaching 80, was betrayed by her lover many years before and has retreated from the world, becoming a recluse living in an underground dugout.' (Trove record)

Notes

  • Dedication:
    For my new grandson, William James Bodhi Morrissey.

    Darling Bo, may you come to know and love the
    wonderful land of the opal, with all its diversity
    and uniqueness, as much as I do. And may
    we share journeys of discovery together.
  • Other formats: Also sound recording.
