A novel of small-town survival ... and a train that arrived too late.

Early one Sunday, the town of Molliston wakes to the news that a young bride is dead. The year is 1929. The Great War with Germany has been fought and won, but at an immense cost to the small community. Death is too familiar here. So many sons were lost. So many daughters would never be wives; so many grandchildren would never be born. Racial hatred is like a bushfire in the belly of some. And the dead girl is found only yards from the property of old Joe Reichenberg, a German.

Tom Thompson, the local cop, lost his two sons in Gallipoli. He believes he has come to terms with his bereavement - until that Sunday. Slowly, the true face of Molliston is exposed. By midnight, a full moon is offering its light - and a glimmer of hope. Download and start listening now!

    " A tragedy about racial hatred and control freaks. Really sad and very depressing to read. I am anxious that these sorts of behaviour still exist. "

    " Enjoy her descriptive style of writing, especially her descriptions of smallAustralian town the twenties and thirties Her books have a lot of characters in them which can be a little confusing at times. "

    " Enjoyed this twisting tale all set over one Sunday in a country town in Victoria just after the Great War. Lots of characters, unfortunately a bit one dimensional but still a good read and would try more of her books. "
