Angorichina is a tuberculosis sanatorium nestled deep within the Flinders Ranges of South Australia. The year is 1932, and a cure for this deadly disease has yet to be found.
A group of unlikely people find themselves thrown together. It isn’t always easy to keep smiling whilst balancing precariously between the secrets and shadows of former lives. From the trenches of Gallipoli to a burning house on the Ceduna coast, everybody has got their cross to bear.
When a new patient arrives from the north, life at the station is set to change. Laura’s straightforward presence shakes the foundations of unwritten rules. Sullen Charlotte finds herself reluctant to relinquish her prejudice towards the girl, whilst Joe is confounded by the young woman’s uncanny understanding of the male mind. It is Heath who falls hardest for her, blindly trusting the one person he knows least about. Sean, a man careless of anyone’s feelings, finds himself surprisingly concerned for his young friend.
At the mercy of the conceited Dr. Hegarty and the crude medical apparatus of the time, each patient must confront their own past whilst looking to an uncertain future.
Angorichina is a story about the extremities of human emotion, about love, loss and redemption. The friendships formed within its walls will endure a lifetime.
