It's 1963 and Sally Mitchell, the well-bred daughter of a wealthy New Zealand sheep farmer, is on her way to England with her friend Pru. When the young women stop over in Sydney, their plans go awry. Sally impulsively takes a job as a governess at Barra Creek, and when the mail plane that flew her there takes off, she finds herself left in a different world: one dominated by the overpowering John Monroe and his strict and proper wife, Lorna. Here, Sally's life changes forever. The challenges of coping with her three young charges, wild stockmen, the heat and the wet, brumby musters, and cattle rushes all pale beside a great passion, a great loss, and a gruesome death. Only Lorna knows the truth of the death and of a terrible injustice. Now, in 2003, she searches for the former governess to finally set things right and share her horrific secret.

    " Miss Morrissey writes cleanly, but I don't find myself becoming emeshed into her stories. I prefer the 'hold onto your seat' and 'oh no' and the 'you're kidding' and of course, the tears, type of reactions to what I read. This was a gentle meander along a still creek. "

    " Loved this book! Awesome holiday read was really nicely paced and a really good story not too predictable like I thought it might be. Didn't think Di Morrissey was for me but I will definitely give her other books a chance in the future! "

    " Not something I would've picked to read, but it was recommended to me. I struggled to start with, but actually learnt a bit about Australian outback history and it ended up being a good read. The big secret was pretty predictable though. "
