And he's got an audience and the women have to just play not groupies but they just have to sit and listen while the minute mile. One another and it's it it gets Abbey's Gart because she. She loves her husband. She admires his work but she knows that. There are a lot of people out there doing important things in hospitals and schools and making roads and cleaning up our garbage and they don't get this kind of education and of course you know Jim. Thanks his wife by giving her pet on the bottom for making a Nice Pavlova Louisville's leader attitude to women going back to union to finish her law degree. What does the Father Think about this? Well I think we can get accustomed to read from page one hundred one as the father said it was enough your mother nothing to scoff at. Its dignified work to take care of you. Home husband and raise a family and this he goes on so the father talking to his daughter says well. Why do you want to be a lawyer? Then what are you trying to prove? Martin's a good salary. You'll make life harder by being at university now. You have kids to look after who are doing that. I suppose you expect him to as well as his job. So you can go off and do what you want. Which by the way he flicks his hand angrily in my direction. Plenty of lawyers in the world without you. You don't need to show off now. Her father has also very distinct views of what son Charley is doing. What is he doing? I'm Charlie leaving his best live. He finished Uni and then he mocked around bit and took off to Bali where he serves and he Works in a restaurant. There aren't very many around that time a he and a couple of nights. I've been to cafe and Khuda near the beach pen. Just hasn't a good time. Sorry you know his his comeback and he knows he has to talk with his father but he feels that he's really grown away. Well let's let's get his point of view from page fifty six. Oh God I hit my reading drawing people mental Okay so Challenge wondering about if he went and had a beer with his dad. Would that be like what would we talk about how incredible it is to surf the endless breaker Illawarra to mind altering after mushrooms would he fades as chickens? We've reached the age where he wants my approval more than I want his. Which makes me feel kind of bad for him and makes him boring company? Every says he's worried about me being directionless but I reckon when I talk about my life in Bali his out of his depth maybe even jealous makes me tired to think about it so he has no this this mutual disrespect. I think between this the Connection Between Wartime Charlie surfing and abby very comfortable in knowing her skills in water currents the title is riptide. What's retired? I think a part of growing up in Queensland Brisbane is not on. The coast is a familiarity with water. We have to learn to swim very young. I grew up in Brisbane. I'm not sure if that was the same down here but we had to learn to swim very young. We spent a lot of time at the beach and going to various off the coast. Islands stride broken bribery. And so we all know about rips which are dangerous because it's the water pushing and pulling at the same time and you lose control of of where you WANNA go. So water is very important in Queensland Life I think and the idea of different forces pulling your round seemed to make sense to me as well as the memory of the father is a teacher and he teaches them about physics and Abby remembers learning about every action has having a reaction and Charlie talks about Karma so how these two lean. I'm I'm not enough of a philosopher to explain the difference between Action and reaction and and Action IN CONSEQUENCE. I guess calmer and the laws of motion but I do feel that. The idea of motion having consequence is yeah so on Australia. Day Nineteen seventy four. Ed Behead to cancel the neighbors neighborhood gathering. What can I be doing stand? There's there's a flood so they need to go rescue the neighbor. Louis Abbey's best friend and Louis envious of Abbey ability to be supermom or is she. You have happy thinking about the flood from page twenty eight right. This is This is after the flood is gone and flood slave a lot of Damage in their wake. The flood wasn't part of my plan. Not Part of any once. These few days will derail us for months. I know now that I should have recognized the flood as a warning accordion. Everything I thought I could control was uncontrollable life. Insistent persistent was about to take on new shapes Shimmery and unpredictable as petrol on a wave with giving you back story about all of this but the book actually starts on Friday the sixth of December Eddie has picked up Charlie from Brisbane where he's flown in from Bali and they drive into the file this farm. It's number of hours away and now Costa Alexandra's going to read the first paragraph of her book. Riptides Charlie is speaking. I wake when shots she reaches across man grabs the Steering Wheel. A cow honed. Braise white beams flare at us then pitched to the right for an instant? A rump of blue metal shines into the headlights. I elbow my sister out of the way and take the wheel leaning back hard so don't Slam my head into it. Abby flattens her hands against the dashboard as I break and strain to control our sideways skid. She screams my name. We sling to one side of the narrow dirt road and the other cast links the opposite way like wrong ends of a magnet made to meet we swelled to an angled stop pointing into scrappy land. So what happened This isn't giving away. Don't WANNA rate 'cause this all happens in the first paragraph right into it they. They've caused an accident as I say because there are two people in the car but obviously there was only one driver and they were both asleep. Both the driver and the passenger were sleep in. The car forced another driver off the road. Who was pregnant and she does her. There are police involved and Sergeant Roberts certainly wants to solve the mystery because they is a mystery. What's the mystery of the car accident? AGAIN. I I worry about giving away too much. But the the mystery is who was the woman and she what. She didn't just die in the car. She was outside the car she she was when the police found her she was lying on the ground in a way that makes no sense to them. She couldn't possibly have fallen that way and her window was down and there was a storm afterwards so none of it makes a lot of sense to them and they figure out fairly quickly that someone took her out of the car and Leho very carefully on the ground so there is the mystery and pick up the father bring back to Brisbane but he becomes the suspect lots of tension in the house and I wonder how the book will hold this because we know about this everything that's happened in the first paragraph and sort of you know. Mark is job as a journalist. He picks up this tension and then he's called away. Why Christmas Day? Why why not cold away. So he's moved out of the out of the household so we have a release of a little bit of tension for a little while. What happened seventy four Christmas Day? Oh I'm I'm Which which were we hitting. Sorry just cyclone Tracy sorry. Okay Yeah just to yes. There is a cyclone up north and our so he off to that and these. Epi feels leave with the self and her dilemma. It will make my life worst and possibly destroy the lives of everyone around me if I tell the truth. Better to hold it in and manage the pain now. This is Kirsten Alexander's great rotting that she can move the plot and still carry the tension oil very
