Notes: Originally published: Australia: The Text Publishing Company. Ned West dreams of sailing across the river on a boat of his very own. To Ned, a boat means freedom - the fresh open water, squid-rich reefs, fires on private beaches - a far cry from life on Limberlost, the family farm, where his father worries and grieves for Ned's older brothers. They're away fighting in a ruthless and distant war, becoming men on the battlefield, while Ned - too young to enlist - roams the land in search of rabbits to shoot, selling their pelts to fund his secret boat ambitions. But as the seasons pass and Ned grows up, real life gets in the way. Ned falls for Callie, the tough, capable sister of his best friend, and together they learn the lessons of love, loss, and hardship. When a storm decimates the Limberlost crop and shakes the orchard's future, Ned must decide what to protect: his childhood dreams, or the people and the land that surround him.

A wonderful book - beautiful descriptions of the wildness of Tasmania, which I have been lucky to experience firsthand. It's a coming-of-age story that manages to be simple and complex at the same time. Robbie Arnott has won all kinds of acolades for his books. This one is his latest and, for me, excelled my expectations.
