Product description

The remote town of Broome, the desert and the Kimberley coast - Australia's last frontier and a land of ancient beauty - are the backdrop for "Kimberley Sun," the sequel to Di Morrissey's international bestseller, "Tears of The Moon.""" Lily Barton, now 53, is beautiful, adventurous and looking for a life change. Sami, her daughter, is driving alone through the outback to finally, reluctantly, confront her family roots. Together they are swept into a world where myths and reality converge, as they find that everyone they meet has a story to tell. From Farouz, the son of an Afghan camel driver, to Bobby, the Chinese-Aboriginal man who is tangled up in the murder of a German tourist, to Biddy, the survivor from Captain Tyndall and Olivia's era . . . And who is the mysterious artist hiding in the desert? All have a secret and a story to share as each finds their place under the Kimberley sun . . .
