This book is a lot slimmer than you'd expect of a novel, just 80 pages all up. This is spare, restrained story-telling. If it wasn't for the power generated by the flash of imagery, it would feel like notes for a novel rather than the thing itself. It's a story of ill-starred love. A young Aboriginal woman survives the murder of her community and after wandering for some time with just nature and an ancestor spirit for company, she finds companionship and intimacy with an isolated Irish fur trapper. Their idyll, forbidden by both their cultures, can't last. You might think you know this story before you open the book. You don't. ( )
