Summary

When your world falls apart, the only person you can depend on is your sister.

The three Chirnwell sisters are descended from the privileged squattocracy in Victoria's Western District - but could a long-held secret threaten their family?

Harriett Chirnwell has a perfect life - a husband who loves her, a successful career and a daughter who is destined to become a doctor just like her.

Xara has always lived in Harriet's shadow; her chaotic life with her family on their sheep farm falls far short of her older sister's standards of perfection and prestige.

Georgie, the youngest sister and a passionate Teacher, is the only one of the three to have left Billawarre. But is her life in Melbourne happy?

All three sisters have a different and sometimes strained bond with their mother. Despite this, 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 more than 50 years in the making start to crack the perfect facade of the prominent pastoral family.

A thought-provoking novel about family expectations, secrets and lies.

SO Satisfying!!!

An interesting premise and character study of a family. I appreciated a great deal that the plot and action of what you want someone to reveal or say continually happens and the author does not purposefully string the reader along for chapters of frustration.

good but not as good as other Fiona Lowe books

I think the story is good and i enjoyed the book. I wish she had gotten a bit more on the aborigini part of the story and that she had not broken the book it 3 parts.
