Gate of Tears is set in Sydney's lower North Shore suburbs in the years immediately following the Second World War. In 1946, Bronwyn Huguet, a war bride, sails from Liverpool to be reunited with her Australian husband, Robert, in Sydney. Travelling with her is their five-year-old son, Tristan. Bronwyn sails with mixed feelings. Her husband, a Merchant Navy officer, had radically changed since returning from a battered Arctic convoy four years earlier. Something happened on that voyage which he refuses to share with her or anyone else. Once reunited in Sydney, the three of them are isolated not only from other families but also from each other. Over the years, in their separate ways, each of them finds consolation in the strangely numinous bushland near their home.
