She stole a look at the man in the driver's seat. Sometimes, Jay seemed as familiar as her own self. Other times he was as different as another language.

Cathy arrives in Alice Springs from cattle country, looking for a new way to live. But new is a serious challenge for a girl who's used to being measured by her actions, not her feelings. Feelings are slippery, like water. Hard to hold onto.

Jay is working for the local radio station, far from his own saltwater people, wary of this no-water country. He's searching for something, trying to survive.

Margie is a wild city girl, up for a good time, confronted by a world she's never known and a friend she can't always understand.

When lives collide at the heart of the country, no one stays unchanged.

This edition of the book includes an additional five paragraphs at the end of the final chapter, added by the author in 2008. These paragraphs follow Cathy further down the track.
