Her nights are spent in bed listening for small sounds to determine the mood of her unpredictable and violent father. Often funny, sometimes unbearably sad, Joss's story is one of strength, acceptance and above all, family.

Despite violence, a married couple remains true to the vow, for better or for worse. The events are seen through the eyes of Joss, 9, whose alcoholic father repeatedly abuses her placid mother, even if he sometimes apologizes. Joss does not understand why her mother puts up with it. One day she will and be glad for it. A first novel by an Australian writer.
