Peter Cross leaves behind the devastating family traumas following the death of his father in England and flies out to Australia to get right away and try and find some peace.
But on his first day there he falls for someone. And that’s where his life starts to get really complicated.
He finds himself drawn into the tangled lives of an affluent community on the New South Wales coast where everyone is carrying a secret of some kind. One way and another his presence lifts the lid on long-held grudges and brings about a confrontation with the truth that many are not keen to see happening.
In this compelling page turner, Peter is rocked by further tragedy that threatens to bring his stay in ‘the lucky country’ to an abrupt end. But he can’t bring himself to leave and finds solace in an unexpected place. He ends up in a kind of love triangle where true happiness beckons if he can get it right.
But will he ultimately find the peace that he craves?
