"Kim had hoped that the traumas of the past were now far behind
her — leaving Vietnam, the forced separation from her family,
and the horrifying boat journey to Australia. But the terrifying
memories continued to surface when least expected.
Yet, despite the nightmares, life in the small Australian coastal
town seemed so ordinary, so safe. School was always the same, as
was life with her uncle and aunt, and her relationship with Gary
had become comfortable. Perhaps too comfortable.
Suddenly it all changed. Everything was happening all at once.
First a boating accident, then Gary’s band really started going
somewhere, and then Kim found herself caught up in a desperate
struggle to save a local lake from developers.
And then, through it all, an unexpected glimmer from the past — a voice Kim had almost given up hope of ever hearing again." (from Publisher's website)
