But is her life in Melbourne happy?Despite all three sisters having a different and sometimes strained bond with their Mother, Edwina, they come together to organise a party for her milestone birthday — the first since their father's death. But when Edwina arrives at her party on the arm of another man, the tumult is like a dam finally breaking. Suddenly the lives of the Chirnwell sisters are flooded by scandal. Criminal accusations, a daughter in crisis, and a secret over fifty years in the making start to crack the perfect façade of the prominent pastoral family.A thought provoking novel about family expectations, secrets and lies.https://youtu.be/06LZP5InOOs
