Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
It was 1945. The men were home from the war and Lara Baxter was born into the generation of baby boomers. Lara grew up in the sixties in a middle-class suburb of Perth, Western Australia with a mother of Victorian values and a larrikin father who loved a beer with his mates. Lara loved her father and all she ever wanted was his love and approval, but it never came. After spending 20 years abiding by the rules, her life would be changed forever. She was raped. Unmarried and pregnant, she had disgraced the family and was kicked out of home to have the baby behind closed doors. Without anyone to support her, the baby was forcibly removed for adoption. Silently she lived with the pain in her heart and grieved alone. Nothing could ever change her life now. She became a different person. She became stronger, her voice became louder. She was never forgiven by her parents and every day was a fight for survival.

Unable to stand up for himself and unable to find his voice, Bill was shy, reluctant, and insecure. Tony, on the other hand, was calm, responsible, and self-reliant, even while facing the misery of his deplorable apartment, or while facing his uncaring slumlords. Thrown out for the last time and unable to gain control, Danny was drunk, desperate, and suicidal. They had nothing in common, nothing to unite them, except for Tommy. Tommy, rich, egotistical, and manipulative, charmed them into his home. At first, all seemed wellwomen and alcohol and endless keggers. It seemed as though the party will never stop. But they would each have their own problems, their own demons, and, worst of all, Tommy. They each would pay a price. Some would not survive. Because in the end, Tommy promised everything, delivered nothing, and stole the rest. Tommy was an Indian Giver.
