An elegant, beautifully written story about a young Lieutenent in the British army posted in Australia when it was orginally being colonized. Introverted and a brilliant mathematician, he has a different point of view on the indigenous people than his fellow soldiers. But that understates the beauty of this literary fiction. I won't reveal more of the plot, but I will say that this was one of the most moving books I've read in a long time. Highy recommended.
