'The Half-Burnt Tree is a novel of involvement. Dymphna Cusack feels deeply about her characters and their problems and her concern illumines the pages.  The central figure is an Australian soldier, maimed and disfigured by napalm in Vietnam, whose wife deserts him and who, embittered and angry, tries to kill himself by repeatedly taking his surfboard over a dangerous reef off a lonely beach.'
