Publisher's Summary

A storm is coming. What's lost will be found. And the sins of the past uncovered.

Jessie Else disappeared the summer the Lambs came to Magpie Beach. Not that the two events were connected at all, in reality; only in my own head, in my own world. They marked for me the end of a certain quiet time and the start of a more complicated living.

Magpie Beach is a quiet seaside town–full of small-town prejudices and small-town cliques. Meg, Rosemary and Lily are all outsiders. Meg and Lily because they came to Magpie Beach to escape their former lives, Rosemary because her upbringing was the subject of much local gossip and upturned noses. The three women come together as friends, partly because their homes are so close together on the outskirts of town–and partly because their neighbours treat them with such suspicion.

When Jessie Else, all of 9 years old, goes missing–it's easy to see why this small band of outcasts are first on the list of suspects–but what they didn't realise is that Jessie's disappearance is only the beginning of their troubles. Soon all those secrets they've been trying to hide are going to be uncovered–and nothing will ever be the same again.

Fans of Jane Harper need to read this.

Absolutely loved it and cannot believe it is her first novel. Amazing characters who you feel a real warmth to. Very well written without cliche after cliche that can be typical of first novels. Just so very well crafted. Would love a sequel as I already miss Rosemary and Meg. Brilliant book and heartily recommend. I forget I was listening to a new author and at one point my head told me it was a Jane Harper novel. Can’t wait for her next book.
