This is the continuation of Tears of the Moon and it was a good story but I do now want to find out what happened earlier.

Lily Barton has been coming to Broome on vacation for the last 8 years, this year her daughter Sami will be there too, for the first time. Lily has retired from her job in Sydney and is thinking about making Broome her home at last. She originally came to find her family roots and keeps coming back to the family she found and to see the friends she has made over time. Lily embarks on a new venture with Tim a young man she met at the races at Bradley Station.

Sami is reluctant to call this new family her own but once she meets them she starts to embrace them and have a little understanding of how her mother feels. There is myriad of characters that really make this story – Farouz, the son of an Afghan camel driver, Bobby, the Chinese/Aboriginal man who through a job he had driving a German tourist to the country races is now linked to his murder. Layla, an Afghan refugee who living is the desert has a story to tell, Ted Palmer and academic who is helping Sami with her thesis and a mysterious sun jewel that ties a it all together.

Good reading or listening.
