'When you look up at that sky, tell me you don't know the world is bigger than this farm.'

Teddy Broderick is committed to her busy life in the country - seeding, harvest, shearing, and the daily milking of her grandmother's cow - but she dreams of another life, in the world beyond the farm gate.
But just as she thinks she knows everything about her family, her grandmother Deirdre announces there is a house buried on the property, and archaeologist Will Hastings is coming to dig it up.
What is hidden in Deirdre's childhood home that she needs to see again before she dies? What is preventing Teddy from living the life she truly wants, and will she ever find her freedom?
As Teddy and Will work to expose past secrets to the light,the stories they tell bring them together, and unearth a whole world of buried treasures.

'Anthea Hodgson is fast gaining a reputation as one of Australia's best rural fiction novelists, and deservedly so.' AusRom Today
