Vertigo: A Pastoral
Turning their backs on the city, Luke and Anna move to the sleepy settlement of Garra Nalla. There they build a new life amid the beauty and danger of the natural world. They encounter drought and fire, local history and local characters, and soon find themselves changing in ways they could never have imagined. Vertigois a fable of love and awakening, a bush pastoral about the unexpected way emotions can return and life can change.
