'Two Generations is a story about Jock Connor, a soldier stationed in Darwin during Japan's 1942-1943 bombing. During an Inspection of Arms, Jock's gun accidentally discharges killing his twenty-two-year old friend and fellow soldier. It is a tale of romance, hardship and resilience, and an intimate and imaginative retelling of the lasting effect of secrets on a family, and the greater impact of the Second World War on northern Australia'.
