Overview

The bombing of Darwin by the Japanese in 1942 was Australia's Pearl Harbor. Faith and her brother, Joe, escape the devastation and chaos aboard Joe's island trading ketch, Faraway, along with Joe's lifelong friend Koko, an Australian-born Japanese fleeing internment.
They are soon separated by the fortunes of war and face their own personal battles against espionage and injustice: Joe in a special army unit serving in the inhospitable wilds of the Northern Territory against a brutal, covert enemy; Koko in a POW camp against a society that appears to have deserted him, and Faith against the machinations of an ivy league American officer intent on keeping her from the man she loves, a Navaho Indian commissioned as a U.S. Army Air Force Pilot.
