Publisher's Summary

A spellbinding contemporary novel, Without a Backward Glance draws us deep into the intensely private world of family life and brilliantly illuminates the joys, sorrows and sustaining comfort that we find there.

On Christmas Eve in 1967, a London woman unhappily transplanted to the Australian suburbs makes a decision that will change forever the lives of her four young children. Forty years on, those children are adept at concealing their shared pain. Deborah has a demanding political career, James is a successful artist, Robert a respected school principal. Only Meredith, the baby of the family seems struck. But as their father begins to lose his grip on reality, they find themselves floundering in an unfamiliar sea. And their past is about to reach into t he present in ways that will shock and challenge them all.

great read

I really enjoyed this book. The author has great skill in telling an interesting story with complex and rich characters. Definitely a step above the usual contemporary fiction. It was well-written and narrator was wonderful. I don't often write reviews but had to write one for this. Couldn't put it down.
