Publisher's Summary

It wasn't just one person who went missing; it was two people. Two very different people. They were there, and then they were gone, as if through a crack in the sky. After that, in a small town like Goodwood, where we had what Nan called 'a high density of acquaintanceship', everything stopped. Or at least it felt that way. The normal feeling of things stopped.

Goodwood is a small town where everyone knows everything about everyone. It's a place where it's impossible to keep a secret.

In 1992, when Jean Brown is 17, a terrible thing happens. Two terrible things. Rosie White, the coolest girl in town, vanishes overnight. One week later, Goodwood's most popular resident, Bart McDonald, sets off on a fishing trip and never comes home.

People die in Goodwood, of course, but never like this. They don't just disappear.

As the intensity of speculation about the fates of Rosie and Bart heightens, Jean, who is keeping secrets of her own, and the rest of Goodwood are left reeling.

Rich in character and complexity, its humour both droll and tender, Goodwood is a compelling ride into a small community torn apart by dark rumours and mystery.

    Story
    "Tidy enjoyable novel which ticks all the boxes."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The narrators role is crucial in the delivery of an audiobook, and the chosen one was perfect for this book. I loved the fine detail in the story. It was joy to listen to. I found I had to keep listening beyond when i had planned, so while it was not thrilling it was intriguing trying to identify who dun it.


    Have you listened to any of Rebekah Robertson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No first time


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was very comfortable and well paced,

    I will look forward to the next one from both women i.e the performer and the novelist. I do enjoy her music too.
