Darcy Jones was an academic who saw the light and decided to enter the real world of helping the down-and-out, where conflict and compromise go hand-in-hand with a good sense of humour. Raised in Somerset, he wrote this novel after he immigrated to Queensland.
In Queensland in the 1990s Phoebe, a young teenage girl survives a distressing environment of drugs and abuse. At the same time Jack Christian tries to make sense of his broken relationships and unrealistic dreams. A bizarre connection to the past brings Phoebe and Jack together in a spellbinding story of love and betrayal, of two very different people.
