"For three very different people brought together by their love of birds, life on the Queensland coast in 1914 is the timeless and idyllic world of sandpipers, ibises and kingfishers. In another hemisphere civilisation rushes headlong into a brutal conflict. Life there is lived from moment to moment.

Inevitably, the two young men--sanctuary owner and employee--are drawn to the war, and into the mud and horror of the trenches of Armentiéres. Alone on the beach, their friend Imogen, the middle-aged wildlife photographer, must acknowledge for all three of them that the past cannot be held."

Malouf's writing is almost poetic in its beauty. I hope another reader finds and enjoys this book, too!

I do love meetups- good company, good food, good coffee and lots of good books. Thanks lmn60, another aussie book for New Zealand. I have a few copies of this book on my bookshelf and greatly enjoyed the novel.
