2007 Audie Award finalist. From the internationally acclaimed and best-selling author of Dirt Music comes an outstanding work of fiction that will resonate with readers everywhere.

Here are turnings of all kinds - changes of heart, nasty surprises, slow awakenings, sudden detours - where people struggle against the terrible weight of the past and challenge the lives they've made for themselves. Beautifully crafted, and as tender as they are confronting, these elegiac stories examine the darkness and frailty of ordinary people and celebrate the moments when the light shines through.

    " Pretty good writing, some of it quite nicely detailed. Helps to know aussie or pom phrases. Only real problem is that some of the short stories are disjointed so you're left wanting more. "

    " Stories of loosely interwoven characters in a small town in Australia ... dark, insightful, beautifully written. The audio version is well read. "

    " Great short stories set around a coastal town in WA. I loved this piece of writing in the "Defender." " you've started going to church again. How'd you know? I found a pew sheet. Well, last year I went whale watching. This year I thought I'd try the Anglicans. "

    " A collection of intensely personal and often tragic stories with a heavy Australian accent (nope, I didn't understand a lot of words). An engrossing book. I found "Boner McPharlin's Moll" to be especially haunting...although the worst name for a short story ever! "
