Daughter of Italian immigrant Eve, and mother of beautiful Jasmine and headstrong Ella, Nina's life has always been bound to those of other women. For the girl who longed for freedom and art, her dreams seem distant when she finds herself raising her daughters with only her mother's support.

Out of Place charts Nina's course through life, from her girlhood, when her mother's European ways are a puzzle and an embarrassment, through her troubled marriage with a man who is always looking elsewhere for happiness, to her struggles as a mother. But just when these three generations of feisty women seem to be pulling together and looking to a happier future, where their lives and loves can be balanced by distance and independence, a tragic accident tears them apart.

Set against the beaches of Perth and the searing heat and harsh beauty of Central Australia, Jo Dutton delicately illustrates the frustrations, problems, joy and love that each of these generations give and take from each other as Nina learns, through heartbreaking lessons, that come what may, her life will always be touched by these three amazing women.
