In the remote Esk Valley of Northern Tasmania, a lost feral child finds shelter and comfort with an old farmer and a young french tourist and slowly begins to find himself. Will is turning seven, and despite his parentless, haphazard beginnings, he has been welcomed with affection and nurtured by Hoppy and Ariette. They have been amazed to discover that Will has an affinity with animals, an ability to communicate with them which is his one prodigeous gift. As they encourage him, others begin to recognise what he can do but not everyone is equally impressed. Though he becomes something of a celebrity in his small community, even featured on television, others resent him. He is attacked and ends up in hospital in a bed beside Hoppy, now his foster parent, who has suffered a heart attack in the middle of the assault. The television program devoted to Will's story, « Devil Whisperer », portays him as a shy little boy, but a skilled animal communicator, especially with the Tasmanian Devils, themselves a threatened species. However when that program goes to air, his birth mother, who carelessly abandoned him years before, wants to see him. Many wounds are opened when she reappears, bringing chaos and nothing in his newly found refuge can be the same. And somehow in the midst of all the exposure and the pitfalls of small fame, the trials and assaults on a sensitive and vulnerable child, a deep love is nurtured. It is this love that will endure.

Alastair Sharp lives and writes in Bordeaux, France. His Australian roots still strongly influence the gestation of his writing while his new milieu opens new perspectives. His novels invariably invoke the mysterious potential that powers the human spirit, where the extraordinary becomes possible, where the ordinary becomes dynamic and where the forces of grace and self effort take flight.
