Winner of the 1996 Miles Franklin Inaugural Kathleen Mitchell Award. Winner of the 1996 Victorian Premier's Literary Award Sheaffer Pen Prize. Honour Book in the 1996 Childrens Book Council Awards. 'We must be ruthless,' Edward snarls, 'because we lead ruthless lives: you, of anyone, should understand that. This is our existence, Jordan, this house, this land, that father, that mother - there's no pity, there's no mercy, there's probably no escape. It is hard, Jordan, and we have to be hard to survive it, and the best we can do is fight anything that threatens to make it worse.' "Fascinating and disturbing, this chilling story reveals how morality can be twisted by obsessive family loyalty." - Publishers Weekly.
