Publisher's Summary

Southern Australia, 1983. While Middle-aged stalwart Miriam rolls into town in her broken down car, Frankie—a deer hunter—is up in the forested hinterland with her gun.

Meanwhile, fisherwoman Old Pearl sits on her front deck with her dog, a glass of whiskey in her hand, and Emily, the English backpacker, scrubs out the pie-encrusted kitchen at the roadhouse.

But all is not well.

Gran Parks is stirring.

Four troubled women. One restless spirit.

Who will survive?

The Past and the Present.

This book is not for the faint of heart or someone who has a weak stomach for it is very descriptive and gory. The story starts off slow but when it picks up it packs a punch. This storyline will definitely make you think twice about small towns and its inhabitants. Revenge, the past and a paranormal twist. I received this book for free upon my request but it has no bearing on my review. This is my honest unbiased review that I am voluntarily leaving of my own volition.

revenge? vigilante? country justice?

Not what I expected at all! At times, it was difficult for me to keep my stomach contents in place. The gore and detached manner in which the crimes were committed was sociopathic. This takes a strong constitution (stomach) to get through all the horrors within. Proceed with caution. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator was good.

Hidden delight

This was really good, it was so addictive I needed to know what is happening next. It was so well written and the characters developed. The plot was so unusual, I just loved it, am so glad that I found both the narrator and author. I must admit after listening to the story I did restart speaking Australian much to my family's annoyance and it brought back memories of country towns back home (although not to this extent)

Legacy

I really enjoyed the narration of Lizzie Bishop, she brings out the characters and plot


The book is set in 1983 , but starts in 1951 as Gloria’s drunken, abusive husband return from the pub. Set in the middle of Australia where the locals know everyone, there is an increase in strangers as Miriam Forster literally rolls into town and cannot leave until her car is fixed. We meet four women Miriam, Frankie, Pearl and Emily w

Each woman are very different. Heads up not eating eating meat pies, now.
