Trysta Montgomery is a twenty-three year old Australian university graduate who plunges into the world of humanitarian work at the height of the war in the former Yugoslavia in 1993.

Initially secluded from the enemy in the relative safety of the beautiful Dalmatian coast and its overflowing refugee camps, Trysta eventually finds herself behind the front lines in Serb-occupied Croatia. Based on the author's actual experiences as a humanitarian aid worker, this fictional account of a young woman's foray into 'someone else's war' is an intelligent and powerful observation of the 1990s conflict and its aftermath, a poignant journey into a European paradise devastated by war.
