Whales have always been the life-force of Angelus, a small town on the south coast of Western Australia.

Their annual passing defines the rhythms of a life where little changes, and the town depends on their carcasses. So when the battle begins on the beaches outside their town, and when Queenie Cookson, a local girl, joins the Greenies to make amends for the crimes of her whaling ancestors, it can only throw everything into chaos.

    I haven't read a bad book by Tim Winton. This is up to his usual high standard. An interesting look at the end of the whaling industry in Western Australia circa 1978.
