AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jaime journeys to the outback to help on the station of Blake, a school friend. What she finds there is his little sister, Liesa, a troubled nine year old who befriends her. Jaime tells Liesa a story she has written about her experiences in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and this story becomes a healing and reconciliation process for each of them. Jaime's relationship with Blake strengthens romantically, and by the end of the novel she is comfortable with living in Australia again although her life in Pakistan will always be a part of her.'
