This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

Strangers did not, as a rule, find their way to Chez Dom, asmall, dingy Tunisian caf#65533; on Paris' distant fringes. Run bythe widow Houria and her young niece, Sabiha, the caf#65533; offers ahome away from home for the North African immigrant workerstoiling at the great abattoirs of Vaugiraud. But when oneday a lost Australian tourist, John Patterner, seeks shelter in thecaf#65533; from a sudden Parisian rainstorm, the quiet simplicities oftheir lives are changed forever.

John is like no one Sabiha has met before--his calm greyeyes promise her a future she was not yet even aware she wanted.Theirs becomes a contented but unlikely marriage--a marriageof two cultures lived in a third--and yet because they areessentially foreigners to each other, their love story sets in motionan irrevocable course of tragic events.

Years later, living a small, quiet life in suburban Melbourne,what happened at Vaugiraud seems like a distant, troublingdream to Sabiha and John. It is a story about home and family,human frailties and passions, raising questions of morals andpurpose--questions that have no simple answer.
