Written as a diary, this novel recounts the coming of age of 18-year-old Helen Smith, a late 1940's Australian girl living in a small sea village with her well-off and pious father. The diary is found by a fascinated French military officer who envisions Helen as a solitary girl with intense sexual desire who yearns for the outside world.
