Publisher's Summary

When their father is critically injured, foreign correspondent Mandy and her siblings return home. Mandy's head is filled with terror and war, and her homecoming only heightens her disconnection from ordinary life.

Cathy, her younger sister, has stayed in contact with her parents, unlike their brother Stephen who, has distanced himself from the family for years. In the hospital the children sit, struggling to connect with their emotions, their past and each other. Finally the pressure intensifies and builds to a climax of devastating force.

Critic Reviews

"Approached with the sensitivity and acuity that is Wood's strength...remarkable in her forensic abilities.... Wood puts an unusually compassionate, hopeful spin on the media's sensationalist practices. The Children confirms her as a captivating, questing writer whose work is well worth watching." (The Weekend Australian)
