A page-turning story of family and secrets and lies from Australia's queen of fiction
The valley is nestled between rugged peaks, divided by a magnificent river. Within its peaceful green contours are held the secrets of generations of tribes, families and loners who have come under its spell.
But some secrets are never shared, never told.
Until one woman returns and begins asking questions… and discovers the story of a forgotten valley pioneer whose life becomes entwined with hers. But in looking into her own family’s history she uncovers more than she ever expected – and what her mother hoped would always remain a secret…
