Ruth is widowed, her sons are grown, and she lives in an isolated beach house outside of town. Her routines are few and small. One day a stranger arrives at her door, looking as if she has been blown in from the sea. This woman—Frida—claims to be a care worker sent by the government. Ruth lets her in.

Now that Frida is in her house, is Ruth right to fear the tiger she hears on the prowl at night, far from its jungle habitat? Why do memories of childhood in Fiji press upon her with increasing urgency? How far can she trust this mysterious woman, Frida, who seems to carry with her, her own troubled past? And how far can Ruth trust herself?

Found in the little free library on Cobourg street. I might read it.

It is also reserved for the VBB writers of the world for Australia.

I'm reading it slowly. It's a quiet story that is growing into some kind of thriller. Is Ruth really loosing it or she's being manipulated? We will see...
