AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Tranquillity Bloom belongs to her parents’ tiny religion in Ballarat, but dreams of escaping to the city. When Saddam Hussein invades Kuwait, her father tries to force her to get baptised. She manages to hold out, but doesn’t know how long she can last. Then her eldest brother and his Outsider wife stop attending, and Tranquillity sees exactly how painful leaving her religion can be.' (Publisher's blurb)
