A NovelBook - 2012
In gorgeously spare, poetic language, BEREFT tells a powerful story about love and loss in a world ravaged by war and disease. The year is 1919 and the Great War has ended. Sergeant Quinn Walker - with a damaged body and soul from his wartime experiences - decides to return home to the small and desolate town of Flint, Australia, to set right the past. Ten years earlier, he had fled following the horrific rape and murder of his beloved younger sister Sarah - a crime that everyone, including his family, believed Quinn committed.
