Drink The SkyBook - 1999
In this compelling novel, a Canadian couple moves to Rio de Janeiro, each partner on a separate quest. Todd Austen is a committed environmentalist, fighting to save the lands of an Amazon tribe threatened by a sinister mining conglomerate. Holly Austen is a painter obsessed by the great voyage of Charles Darwin, who once lived only miles from her crumbling Rio house. She is also the caring mother of two young sons who finds herself constantly struggling for balance - that great ecological ideal - which also motivates her pre-occupied and increasingly endangered husband. Drink the Sky is a beautifully written, rich and evocative novel that asks some very modern questions about inheritance. What world will we bequeath our children? And what kind of childhood do we give them, as we struggle to attain our ideals?(1999)
