I hear a dragging sound followed by my father's limping appearance at the door. I look at him in horror. He's starting at me, glasses askew, waving the birds' nest. 'You imbecile.

'The tender yet unsparing depth of characterisation in the novel is matched by the limped beauty of the writing, the sensual evocation of the snowfields setting and the compelling nature of the story.' Weekend Australian 'A dark, gripping tale.' The Age 'The ending is a dramatic as they come.' Sydney Morning Herald

I cleared the debris off the floor of the forest until I reached red earth, then I got a stick, I made a shallow grave and put the baby robins in it. I have wondered about those robins and how they fit in nature. Was it chance or grand design witch made me go down this particular path?

Parents will: - understand the family dynamics that either impede or nurture self-sufficiency; - foster a higher degree of academic, professional, and fiscal responsibility; - effectively encourage young adults to establish realistic goals and create a meaningful vision for their future; - learn how to gradually let go, so that young adults discover how to resolve their own problems.
