Literature fiction

Even as they mourn the absence of their sons and husbands, the farmers of Australia wonder how to cope with PoWs living in their midst. Some of them would treat them with disdain, while others would grant them the humanity they deserve. However, the PoW camp is a cruel trap, a dark machination of mankind’s deeply seeded hate. Their lives are singular remnants of a war that should not have been fought in the first place, and they too seek to return home, to families who think them dead.
