Georgie Jutland, a risk-taker who drinks too much, is almost happy living with widowed lobsterman Jim Buckridge. Then she meets Luther Fox, a former musician who makes his living as an illegal fisherman. When Luther runs to Australia's tropical wilderness to escape trouble, Georgie follows. What then takes place is an unusual love story by one of Australia's most distinguished novelists. Suzi Dougherty offers a nice range of Australian voices, which help color the characters' words. Her relaxed "cocktail-time" style perfectly suits the moody story. Well done. A.C.S.
