Years after leaving the home where she had grown up with an alcoholic father and a mother who disappeared one day in the middle of a blizzard, Sonja Buloh returns to Tasmania to make peace with her tortured past

Blackwell North Amer
In the winter of 1954, in a construction camp for a hydroelectric dam in the remote Tasmanian highlands, when Sonja Buloh was three years old and her migrant Slovenian father was drunk, her mother Maria walked off into a blizzard, never to return. Thirty-five years later, Sonja returns to Tasmania and a father haunted by memories of the European war and other, more recent horrors. As the shadows of the past begin to intrude ever more forcefully into the present, Sonja's empty life and her father's living death are to change forever. The Sound of One Hand Capping is about the barbarism of an old world left behind, about the harshness of a new country, and the destiny of those in a land beyond hope who seek to redeem themselves through love.

Baker

This author is amazing. I read 200 pages in one setting. Beautifully articulate. Truly a bard.
