Biography/History

Two children are brought into a wild garden on the shores of Sydney Harbour to shelter from the Second World War. The boy's mother died in the Blitz. The girl is the daughter of a Sydney woman and a Communist executed in a Greek prison. In wartime Australia, the two children form an extraordinary bond as they negoiate the dangers of life as strangers abandoned on the far side of the world. White put aside the novel at this point and how he planned to finish it remains a mystery.
