A moving love story that is also a deeply absorbing poetic meditation on the moral journey of a solitary man. A brilliant achievement.
Alex Miller

An Australian soldier in British service parachutes into the roaring embattled skies of the night before D-Day, and lands in a vast lake of flooded fields. His encounter with a mysterious woman who seems to rule that water world deflects him from the war and from all the promise his life had seemed to hold. This is a strange and compelling novel.
Les Murray
