Here she meets the Aquino family, whose fishing business was founded by their ancestor, Giuseppe, an immigrant Italian, some ninety years before. Life for Cassie on the south west coast is sweet as she sets up a successful restaurant and falls in love with Giuseppe's great grandson Michael. But when the family patriarch dies, a devastating family secret is revealed which threatens to destroy her dreams. Cassie's future happiness now rests with her quest for the truth.

"The Morrissey name has become a sure-fire indicator of a big read." (The Australian)
"Highly recommended for holiday reading." (Woman’s Day)
I have read almost every Di Morrissey book; this was my first audible. The reader Kate Hood was EXCELLENT and the story was yet another brilliantly written, captivating read.
My first experience listening to a Di Morrissey Audio book. Was a bit hesitant at first, as
I thought the story might drag on a bit. I was very wrong. Beautifully narrated, and captured the unique Australian background to the storyline. Loved the story.
"Beautiful and thoroughly engrossing"
Amongst the best, I'm sure I will listen to it again
The overall story content and interesting characters
I really loved this story, although a little over descriptive at times. The Narrator is too sickly sweet for my liking.
Struggled through the book - partly narration partly story. The voice of Cassy so irritating. The 'interesting' (read irritating) tidbits around fishing and basically everything else was not making the story more interesting but rather patronising. Not worth a credit.
"Rich and believeable story"
The writer engross you in the colourful adventure of Giuseppe, a very likeable Italian migrant who ventured out from his small island hometown to Australia. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the story is actually not centred only on Cassie's side but Joe also played a crucial role. In my opinion Joe's story was more interesting than Cassie's (though it's definitely nice to read both).
