'Love is something unpredictable and has the power to muddle up your whole life within minutes - especially when the beloved one is not a human but a continent. This is what happened to the author fifteen years ago when she fell in love with Australia. ...She decided to write a book - a 184-page-long declaration of love in which she takes the reader on a journey across Australia, revealing in good humour the wonders, secrets and oddities of this continent through the eyes of an European. However, the unusual title might already suggest that there is more to the story. Since Janine was born in Germany and still resides there, the book is also part of an extraordinary migration strategy - a strategy that will only work if the reader plays along...'
