When did it all start? This feeling of being beneath water: slow and cumbersome, every movement met with something thicker than air, some form of resistance she was unable to see.

On a rundown station in the remote top end of Australia, life for Susannah is isolated and difficult. Left alone by her husband, the manager of the station, Susannah has to cope with their young twins, the relentless physical work of running the homestead, and the frustration that these things now mark the boundaries of her life. A dark history seeps through the land and the air shimmers with heat and an intangible menace; nothing is as she expected it to be. And then a young English jillaroo, Laura, arrives to work on the property. She falls in love with Texas, the Aboriginal head stockman, believing that her love will pull him out of long-held destructive habits. As the weather builds and the heat intensifies, both Susannah and Laura are faced with decisions that will affect the rest of their lives.

Winner of the 2001 The Australian/Vogel Literary Award for her bestselling novel Skins, Sarah Hay writes compellingly of the ruthless nature of this country and the fragility of the people trying to force their will upon it.
