When Marie D'Anger saw that look in Edy Baudin's eye, she knew it was time to go home. Marie D'Anger returns to the family home in south-west Australia after years of living in England, to a father whose destructive impulses have been curbed by a stroke, and a mother whose passivity she never understood. Behind her is Edy Baudin and the deep love they shared before he left, suddenly and without explanation. Further back still is her father and his fraught relationships with his mother, brother and step-father. But when Edy follows Marie to Australia, her father's shocking revelation brings hidden things to the surface.
