More About This Book

Overview

Edward Williams and Anna Griffiths, children of two close family friends, who had known each other virtually from birth and who had pledged each to the other as children, as young adults are called upon to honour that pledge.
Edward, son of Charles Williams, is now a Geologist, and has returned from an oil exploration ship in the Timor Sea, where he was traumatised by the events he witnessed in the Indonesia of President Suharto. There were appalling tragedies that he witnessed and which affected him personally to such a degree that he retired to a remote cottage in his own country, and hid in solitude.
Anna, adopted daughter of Will and Megan Griffiths has graduated as a Philosopher and must face a short life because of a condition inherited from her biological parentage. She is determined that in the time available to her she will trace her biological parents and come to know who and what they are, and she enlists Edward's help in her search. Her mother has died and her father, in his own solitude, has immersed himself in the Ancient Myths and Legends of their land, to an extent that they have become his reality, and his daily life has become the fiction. They take him to live with them in Edward's remote house. Their lives become driven on these two planes which must be reconciled; and they are called upon to justify their commitments to each other; and to justify the continuance of their own lives.
