SYNOPSIS: In 1882, human remains were discovered at the Sinkings, a lonely campsite near Albany, Western Australia. The surgeon conducting the autopsy claimed they were those of a woman. Why, then, was the victim later identified as Little Jock, a former convict? And why was the murder so brutal, so gruesome? More than a hundred years later, Willa Samson embarks on a long and lonely search to find out. The Sinkings is a story within a story, the tragic historical account of Little Jock's life embedded within a contemporary narrative of a mother's guilt and grief. Beautifully crafted, the novel deals with the dilemma confronting parents of an intersexed child and the issue of gender. While a work of fiction, the discovery of Little Jock's remains and the controversy surrounding their identification are actual events. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Historical; ISBN: .
