This is a stark book that evokes the harshness of the Australian bush and the people who try to make a living from the land. The story focuses on Rex and Irene who marry in haste in the aftermath of the 2nd World War. Jenning's writing style is spare with short vignettes rather than chapters that are seemingly unrelated until you finish the book and  are left with an

 overwhelming sense of despair, bitterness, disappointment and tragedy.
