Wind in the Wires

by Joy Dettman

It’s 1958 and Woody Creek is being dragged kicking and screaming into the swinging sixties.

Jenny’s daughters, Cara and Georgie, are now young women. They’ve both inherited their mother’s hands, but that’s where their similarity ends. Raised separately, they have never met.

A mistake from Cara’s teenage years looms over her future, but she believes emphatically in the white wedding and happily-ever-after myth. Georgie has seen enough of marriage and motherhood. She plans to live her life as her grandmother did, independent of a man.

But life for the Morrison girls has never been easy, and once the sisters are in each other’s lives, long-buried secrets are unearthed, the dramatic consequences of which no-one could have predicted . . .

Wind in the Wires is the long‐awaited fourth title in the popular Woody Creek series by this master Australian storyteller.
