Compass - Restoration
On a hot summer's day 20 years ago a crime shattered the tight-knit religious community at New Norcia in Western Australia. Two men brazenly stole the monastery's crown jewels: the finest collection of post-renaissance religious art in Australia. In their haste the robbers slashed the 26 paintings from their frames.
New Norcia is an extraordinary and beautiful religious township, established 150 years ago by Benedictine monks exiled from Spain. This is a detective story with a crime as its starting point, and themes of restoration, forgiveness and redemption at its heart.
