Like Margo Lanagan, Hinwood doesn't trade in black-and-white moral absolutes but directs her attention, and ours, to the infinite shades of gray that lie between them. Alternative historical fiction. That’s what this is, the ripples. Early chapters of this extraordinary debut (published in Australia as Bloodflower in 2009) are loosely connected vignettes focusing on the ripples farthest from the center: families on the losing side whose sons didn’t return, the one son-Cam-who did, refugees who arrive and move in. Gradually, readers are drawn back to the center, to those who waged and won the war.
