Synopsis As with her four previous novels Bronwyn Tate explores landscape and the inportance place has in the life of her characters.

The Landing, a promontory surrounded on three sides by river and sea, was once home to colonial settlers. A group of students spend their summer holidays restoring its historic homestead. Claire and Norse, and Jo and Sam, what is it ithat pulls them back to The Landing? Evie is one of the new generation; her friendship with recent arrival Candy Wong comes at a time when turmoil disturbs the usual tranquility of her life.

This is a novel filled with characters and her location against the background of a small community and the ebb and flow of the timeless waters.

The controll Tate shows over her charactyers and her location gives the reader the sensation of having been on a long passage of discovery. There are secrets, young secrets and old secrets that are exposed only when the author thinks the reader is ready.

This is Tate's final most multifacteted novel, and het skill is evident. the pity is we can have no more from her.
