A Time and Place
About the Book
This is the heart-wrenching love story of a young couple caught up in a plot aided by the Royal Ulster Constabulary, which cruelly tore them apart. Raw emotion is traced in and out of their separated existences and discloses their enduring love, and how, though lost to each other, neither would let go of their astounding love. This book has its beginning in Northern Ireland and moves to the vast, dusty desert region of the Pilbara in north-western Australia. It is set in the early 1960s when this region was part of the ‘last frontier’ in its remoteness, danger, and grandeur
