Review:

"Something about this author's calm, deliberate style creates unexpected excitement... we are warmed by the justice and sheer pleasure of it" ( Independent)

"Nevil Shute made me yearn for a faithful, plodding, Shute-type of man. I imagined us trekking across the Australian outback, finding a run-down hamlet, and then transforming it together until death or flood parted us" ( The Times)

Book Description:

A classic adventure from the author of A Town Like Alice and On the Beach.
