Kelly Roberts finds refuge in the rugged and remote cattle country of northern Australia, but when tragedy strikes she is forced to find a new life for herself and her children outside of Rainsford Station. She retreats to the family's only asset - a freehold block of land owned jointly by her eccentric father-in-law, Quinn. In the valley at Evergreen Springs, Quinn hopes the fractured family might all come together to start over again. Life in Queensland's far north is unpredictable - especially with the wildness of the wet season. But when twelve-year-old Rob makes a gruesome discovery in the valley, real peril comes far too close to home. 'Kerry McGinnis writes like poetry . . . She stands out among Australian authors.' Fleur McDonald 'The setting is beautiful . . . I am definitely adding her other books to my to-be-read list.' All the Books I Can Read 'An engaging story of family and second chances set in the stunning Gulf country.' Book'd Out
