Tranquillity Fields by John Aitkenhead9781922812278, 9781922812414 **Price includes shipping across Australia**
When Jarrah Jandamarra wakes to find himself alone in the Australian desert, it takes a little while for him to realise that his father has failed to return from hunting. The year is 1770.
A few years later, on the other side of the world, Regina Courtney finds herself abandoned in the slums of Plymouth, England, when her widowed mother is jailed for prostitution.
Both Jarrah and Regina's stories start when they are just nine years old.
What follows is a family saga of lives entwined with the history of ‘Tranquillity Fields', the Plymouth property bought by Regina when she returns to England to search for her mother.
Spanning more than 200 years and across two continents, Tranquillity Fields is a story of separation and reunion, passion, revenge and interacting relationships set against the backdrop of two World Wars and the many cultural and historic changes the descendants of Jarrah and Regina experience over those years.
