In the 70s travel scenes of Afghanistan, India and Thailand, Elsie discovers adventure, friendship and freedom. After three years, she returns to her welcoming and loving family in suburban Australia where time seems to have stood still. Disenchanted with the dreary conventions of authoritarian and Catholic Adelaide, she becomes a restless spirit torn between the call of family and the world. An ever-searching series of relationships and relocations ultimately takes her as a single parent to live on the Greek island of Paros, until tragedy unexpectedly reconnects her with Australia and the complex truth about love and family. This is a deeply affecting, sprawling, beautiful novel about finding one's way in life and the world. Lemniscate - a line that travels continuously outward as it travels continuously inward.
