About the Book

A novel of family and place. An Australian family, five generations old. Transgressions, taboos, secrets, shames. Progressing through the generations. Hidden within the family. Unspoken. Unacknowledged. Madness, illegitimacy, miscegenation, murder. But also, love.” Finding the stories within the gaps, the spaces in the remembering and forgetting, Finding Theodore and Brina is a testament to the delicacy and complexity of family and relationships. Intimate, intricate and deeply absorbing it illuminates lost lives and rescues individuals from the margins of history.
