Over a decade later, Flinch has become a recluse, unable to move on from that fatal moment. The Bay, too, seems stalled in its bloody past, the land and the ocean on which it was founded now barren and unyielding. It is only after crossing paths with Karma, a girl living in one of the hinterland's first hippie communes, that Flinch gradually and reluctantly embarks upon a path towards healing, coming to terms with his past, present and future. A very Australian tale of fate, forgiveness and redemption, Death of a Whaler is a story about the unsteady progress we make towards healing and wholeness."--BOOK JACKET." ;
