Anticipating the arrival of his wife and child in Ireland, Fred Scully is devastated when his little girl appears alone at the airport. She carries no note, and offers no explanation for her mother's absence. As father and daughter frantically search Europe for the woman who has mysteriously abandoned them, Tim Winton paints a searing portrait of how one love destroys a man--and another saves him. "Satisfies on every level."--The Washington Post Book World.

I didn't find it "satisfying on every level." It was gripping, a page turner, well done - right up to the end, when it just stopped. I suppose that allows every reader to add his or her preferred ending, but it didn't work for me.
