Description

'Fleur McDonald has a wonderful way with telling rural stories in a special way...A great summer read.' Samstillreading on Suddenly One Summer Chelsea drove slowly through the small country town of Barker, her eyes searching to see what had changed in the last nine years...She's been in two minds about going home. Part of her wanted desperately to sit on the riverbank and breathe in the peace. But why would she put herself through all the pain of a homecoming when she didn't need to? Nine years ago, thirty-year-old Chelsea Taylor left the small country town of Barker and her family's property to rise to the top as a concert pianist. With talent, ambition, and a determination to show them all at home, Chelsea thought she had it made. Yet here she was, in Barker, with her four-year-old daughter, Aria, readying herself to face her father, Tom. The father who'd shouted down the phone nine years ago never to come home again. With an uneasy truce developing, Chelsea and Aria settle into the rhythm of life on the land with Tom and Cal, the farmhand, who seems already to have judged Chelsea badly. Until a shocking discovery is made on the riverbed and Detective Dave Burrows, the local copper, has to tear back generations of family stories to reveal the secrets of the past. Chelsea just wants a relationship with her dad but will he ever want that too? Or will his memory lapses mean they'll never get that opportunity? Praise for Fleur McDonald 'An excellent read and the sort of book I didn't want to end.' Debbish.com 'Drawing on her own experiences with rural Australia, Fleur has used these skills to weave a moving tale.' Highlife Magazine 'A rural novel of courage, family and survival...McDonald weaves the varying threads together strongly.' Aussie Reviews
