    Bereft MOBI æ Paperback bereft kindle, Bereft PDFAs Sergeant uinn Walker contemplated the vast blue ocean surrounding him with the murmur of the other soldiers behind him he wondered at life – wondered at his survival while many others did not The Military Cross he had received for bravery; acts he couldn’t remember but received assurances of the lives he had saved The bitterness was deep within him the savagery intense as he hurled the award far into the ocean imagining it sinking into the depths as he sometimes wished he could do The troopship Argyllshire was returning the wounded desolate soldiers home to Australia home to a land which was suffering terribly from a plague of influenza The year was 1919 when uinn returned to his home town of Flint in NSW – ten years since he had fled after his beloved sister twelve year old Sarah had been murdered He was unaware when he ran that he was being accused of her murder – but knew now that this was the case and he needed to set things ri
