This is a visceral, engaging and demanding debut novel by a well-travelled author with first-hand experience in a variety of war zones.It is the story of Lizzie who is no hero. She is a coward who has fled Australia, an abusive and loveless existence and the sorrow of being abandoned by her loving mother, Gwennie, and her redoubtable nanna. She lands a job in Geneva, travelling to war zones and refugee camps, and gradually comes to relish her new independence. Physically, Lizzie survives. Emotionally, she shuts down, closing her mind to memories, nursing anger and feeling of guilt, and determined never to let herself be vulnerable again. She has what she thinks is a one-night stand with a war photographer.But eventually she has to choose whether to stay safe in emotional isolation or take another risk--trust someone else. After all, she is Gwennie's and Nanna's girl. The decision is made.
