When the Night Comes by Favel Parrett

Between the coasts of Tasmania and Antarctica the lives of a lonely girl, a gentle man, and a red ship intersect. Their stories unfold in short, evocative vignettes that capture emotional time and space as well as bring the physical spaces to life. The girl, Isla, lives with her Mum and little brother, just getting by without many resources or even love to spare. The arrival of the Nella Dan and the ship's steward, Bo, briefly opens a window into another world, one of contrasts between the cold stillness of ice and busy heat of mess halls. The skill and insight that earned Parrett's debut novel, Past the Shallows, critical acclaim have created another moving account of the depth of ordinary lives. (Library Journal, starred review)
