Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1997

When Rosie Trethewey inherits a "home" on Great Barrier Island, she learns the area is inhabited by two loners, Angus McLeod, a caustic Scot, retired policeman, and secret novelist; and Red O'Hara, a survivor of the Burma Railway. Aghast that their quiet island home has been invaded by a woman, Angus and Red attempt to discourage Rosie from settling there. Christopher Cazenove brings the adventures, heartache and secret lives of these three survivors to life with subtle New Zealand accents and Scottish burrs. With Cazenove's inconspicuous performance, the inhabitants' relationships and dreams are forged, drawing the listener into the web of life on this barren, desolate island and the hearty souls who gather strength and sustenance there.
