This unconventional war story alternates between the Solomon Islands, where Tom is liaison officer with the coastwatchers, and rural New Zealand where he returns after World War II. Annie, his younger sister, is cheerful, talented, but her actions contribute to his downfall. A critique of war, a post-colonial view of race relations and an account of post-traumatic stress are embedded here.
