Based on the true story of Fay Howe, this gentle tale brings to life the hardships of those left at home during the war-waiting, wondering, hoping.

Fay lives alone with her father on bleak, windswept Breaksea Island, but her isolated life takes a dramatic turn with the outbreak of World War I.

Fay collects the messages of lonely soldiers heading to the frontline. She is their last hope of getting messages telegraphed back home.

Drawing on fascinating archival material, and interweaving fact with fiction, award-winning author Dianne Wolfer deftly recreates this period in Australian history from the perspective of a young girl.
