The remote town of Broome, the desert and the Kimberley coast--Australia's last frontier and a land of ancient beauty. Lily Barton, now 53, is beautiful, adventurous, and looking for a life change. Sami, her daughter, is driving alone through the outback to finally, reluctantly confront her family roots.
Together they are swept into a world where legends, myths, and reality converge. They find that everyone they meet has a story to tell, from Farouz, the son of an Afghan camel driver, to Bobby, the Chinese-Aboriginal man who is tangled up in the murder of a German tourist. And who is the mysterious artist hiding in the desert?
All have a secret and a story to share as each finds their place under the Kimberley sun.
