Summary
Frank has driven furiously out of Canberra to a shack by the ocean that he last visited as a teenager. He's desperate to put certain painful memories behind him - including the turbulent departure of the woman he loves - and to be alone. But solitude isn't easy to come by in a small town, and the past refuses to lie quiet. Forty years earlier, Leon returns to Australia from fighting in Vietnam, a broken man no longer able to live with his wife and child, tragically carrying on a family tradition: his father had been similarly torn apart - their home life destroyed - by his experiences in the Korean War
Summary
After the departure of the woman he loves, Frank drives out to a shack on the east coast once owned by his grandparents. There, among the sugarcane and sand dunes, he struggles to rebuild his life. Forty years earlier, Leon is growing up in Sydney, turning out treacle tarts at his parents' bakery and flirting with one of the local girls. But when he's conscripted to serve in Vietnam, he finds himself suddenly confronting the same experiences that haunt his war-veteran father. As these two stories weave around each other, we learn what binds Frank and Leon, and what may end up keeping them apart.
