On an island in the Great Barrier Reef, a woman waits for help beside the body of her husband. For 25 years they have lived in isolation, and while she waits she reviews their years together. The writer EJ Banfield — author of Confessions of a Beachcomber — and his wife Bertha lived on Dunk Island through the first decades of the 20th century. This account imagines what it might have been like from her point of view. As Banfield did, Mitchell tells his story using fact blended with fiction.
