Facing the Sun

Helena Phillips


The Birdsville Track in outback Queensland becomes a highway to realisation for Jack an indigenous youth worker. Its seductive serenity is punctuated by several ‘other-worldly’ intrusions threatening to spirit him away into madness. But the pervading desire for a lover to replace the memories of Tim wins out, bringing new hope. Not racism, his mother’s acute illness, nor his nephew’s physical and emotional battles can prevent him from giving his heart again. Reunions with long lost family prove not all they’re cracked up to be, yet hope triumphs.

In this finale of the Caretakers Trilogy, Facing the Sun considers cultural and spiritual identity.
