This book is a work of fiction. Some of the characters and events are based on true stories.
Fern arrives in Australia by fishing boat, a refugee, escaping her war-torn country of Vietnam. A boatload of desperate people disgorged onto the barren Northern Territory coastline.
She first encounters the local Aboriginal people and the path that emerges, leads to a remote community in Arnhem Land. Is there a future here for a young Asian woman?
Birds and their eggs bring her joy and friendships, but discovering the love of a MAF pilot opens a way to new life and the understanding that God is seeking her out.
