Publisher's Summary

From Australia's Queen of Fiction, the international best-selling author of 13 novels, comes a compelling story of family secrets and lies.

A valley, nestled between rugged peaks, is divided by a magnificent river - and within its peaceful green contours are held the secrets of generations of tribes, families, and loners who have come under its spell. Some secrets are never shared, never told.

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.

not her best

I read Barra Creek and enjoyed it ever so much more. The characters in this book weren't as interesting.
