"Dettman writes compulsively readable stories" The Age
As Woody Creek draws Joy Dettman's much-loved cast of characters back into its grip, confessions, discoveries and truths seem certain to explode in the most shocking of showdowns...
Woody Creek is preparing for its centenary celebrations - but for many of its townspeople it's just another reminder of the old days, before so-called progress roared through the town, altering everything in its wake.
Not for Georgie though. As the clock ticks over to 1970, she's determined that the new decade will be the one that sees her finally break free.
For Cara, Woody Creek will forever be tied to a devastating mistake that cannot be undone. She's vowed never to set foot in the place again.
Meanwhile, Jenny's estranged son, Jim, has inherited an estate in the United Kingdom and is trying to make a new life for himself. If only he could shake off his one terrible attachment to Australia.
The old timber town of Woody Creek has a way of getting under people's skin...
