Kes is facing the unthinkable. As drought and bushfire threatens their lives, their homes, and wipes out their cattle, the unthinkable is becoming a reality — her family will have to abandon the mountain property of her great-grandparents. Kes is torn by her search for her own identity and her Aboriginal grandmother. If her gentle father was not a stolen child, but simply unwanted, will she keep this knowledge to herself? And then there are the incredible discoveries, one which only makes her more confused, and the other which could be their salvation?
