Jenny Morrison is bravely trying to move on with her life. Her husband missing amidst the turmoil of WWII, she takes refuge with Ray King, a slightly sinister, stuttering boy who disappeared from Woody Creek as a teenager but has now reappeared. In return for regular 'wifely duties', Ray offers Jenny and her three children sanctuary at his house in Melbourne. For a time, she is happy. But then Jenny's father - the philandering impresario Archie Foote - storms back into her world and chaos reigns again. Archie recognises Jenny's brilliance and offers her a second chance - a way to escape the domestic drudgery and finally fulfil her dream. But when you have three children, one missing husband and another with a dark secret, dreams have a habit of turning into nightmares...

I read the first two books of this trilogy in hard copy and was thrilled to be able to download the third. What a brilliant story. Having been brought up in Box Hill I enjoyed the references to this and nearby suburbs. The use of coloquial Australian language made it more familiar.
