A disturbing glimpse into a reality based on illusion…
China Collins' passionate mid-life marriage to Sam Eagle, an aboriginal
lawyer, seems to be all she'd ever hoped for. As the artist settles in to
the life she and her husband are making together in their Maritime Home,
she slowly realizes that Sam isn't quite what he'd seemed. The pieces of
the puzzle swirl and swift, but China cannot evade the truth forever - the
truth that her beloved husband is a pathological Liar.
In the process of tracking her husband's lies, the artist becomes a
detective. China reluctantly leads herself to expose the delicate pattern of
deceit she herself has invented in order to live with the man she chose to
love. Eventually she devises a unique way to regain her freedom, but it all
ends in a resolution that she hadn't foreseen.
Fragments of China's Poetry and her journal entries provide a fascinating
glimpse into her perceptions of a situation that has bound itself deeply
into her life, and that refuses to be unbound without a struggle.
