An unexpected letter from Tokyo impels a Canadian accountant to break his resolution never to revisit the past. Hunting out an old journal, he relives his adventures on the far side of the Pacific, when he sought redemption for his sins among primitive but contented islanders. There he aided Japanese veterans in their search for a World War 2 flying boat, put an elderly English spinster in touch with her half-caste nephew and helped a tribe to preserve its age-old customs. Only now, ten years later, does he learn that, in the process, he may have forfeited the greatest opportunity of his life. In Landfall, his fourth novel, Peter Moss explores the myriad miscommunications, misunderstandings and mysteries of the human heart.
