Publisher's Summary

The Bay is a beautiful and peaceful town on the Australian east coast; a melting pot of city escapees, alternative lifestylers, feral dropouts, lost souls, backpackers, and men and women in search of love and a new sense of identity.

When Sydney corporate wife Holly Jamieson turns 45 she shocks her husband by buying an old house in The Bay with plans to transform it into a charming B & B.

What began as a gesture of independence changes her life. Holly soon discovers that beneath its tranquil surface, The Bay is a whirlpool of passions and conflict. It was once a whaling town, then a sleepy resort that became trendy, and now developers are moving in for the kill. Holly, her family, and an unusual band of new friends are in the battle lines - and not always on the same side.

Save the planet sermonette

I loved Heart of the Dreaming and thought this would be another great book. Not to my taste. 80% of the story is a sermon on save the planet, save the whales, don't build, etc. Although I can agree with much of what the author had to say I was looking for entertainment -- not a sermon.

Don't waste your time or money!!!

This book had so much potential but never got there. I could have missed whole chapter and it wouldn't have mattered!!! Disappointed.
