The fourth book in the dark and addictive Woody Creek series from bestselling Australian author Joy Dettman

"Dettman writes compulsively readable stories" The Age

"The bombshell conclusion was worthy of a Thomas Hardy novel" Good Reading

The wind is whispering in Woody Creek... Change is in the air

It's 1958 and Woody Creek is being dragged - kicking and screaming - into the swinging sixties.

Cara and Georgie are now young women but, raised separately, they have never met. They've both inherited their mother's hands, but that's where their similarity ends.

Despite a teenage mistake looming over Cara's future, she still believes in the white wedding and happily ever after myth. Georgie, however, has seen enough of marriage and motherhood, and plans to live her life independent of a man.

But once the sisters are drawn into each other's lives, long-buried secrets are bound to be unearthed, the dramatic consequences of which no-one could have predicted...

"The texture of the writing as well as the mind-boggling plots give her books a fatally addictive attraction" Saturday Age

Fans of Rosalie Ham's The Dressmaker will love Joy Dettman.
