Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction Best Book (nominee)
In the remote Australian outback during World War II, the emotionally stunted child of an English couple is befriended by equally adrift strangers. Perdita becomes friends with a deaf and mute boy, Billy, and an Aboriginal girl, Mary. Perdita and Mary soon come to call one another sister and begin to share a profound bond. They are content with life in this barren corner of the world until a terrible event lays waste to their lives. Sorry explores the values of friendship, loyalty, and sacrifice with a brilliance that has earned Gail Jones numerous accolades.
