Description:

A hauntingly beautiful quest for love and forgiveness. In the remote Australian outback during World War II the emotionally adrift child of an English couple is befriended by equally anomalous strangers. Perdita becomes friends with a deaf and mute boy, Billy, and an Aboriginal girl, Mary. Perdita and Mary soon come to call one another sister and to share a profound bond. They are content with life in this harsh corner of the world, until a terrible event lays waste to their lives. Through this exquisite story of Perditas troubled childhood, Sorry explores the values of friendship, loyalty and sacrifice with a brilliance that has earned Gail Jones numerous accolades.
