What is a heart language? What is the difference between speaking a language and understanding it? That’s the mystery Mike faces as he tries to understand why his older brother has worked so hard to learn an aboriginal language ever since they moved to Australia. Hallam Tennyson has just become second Governor-General of Australia, and Mike borrows a page from one of the works of Hallam’s father, Alfred Tennyson, to explain it to Mike.
