Description - Vertigo by Amanda Lohrey
Luke and Anna decide on a sea-change. They leave the city, fleeing a past and a future that fill them with fear. On the coast they discover a natural world that is both destructive and rejuvenating. Events sweep them up and they must confront what they have tried to put behind them.
Vertigo is a fable of love and awakening, a bush pastoral about the unexpected way emotions can return and life can change.
