Set on the lonely coast of Australia just after the end of the first World War, this is a character driven novel about the ethics of love. Stedman's writing is solid, but I completely hated her characters, and the plot wasn't deep enough to hold my interest. I won't include any spoilers, but there's one central plot device in this book and it gets very old after a few hundred pages. I can't shake the feeling that this book would have made a great short story.
