Publisher's Summary

I want you to come back to Kings Canyon.... If you see it again, the memories of what happened might return.

When Sara Blake takes up a position as governess on Redhill Station in Central Australia, she isn’t expecting to encounter a family in crisis, or to uncover a tragedy of her own.

The longer she spends out bush, the more she becomes plagued by elusive visions of her dark and troubled childhood. The fragments of memory lead her deep into the red centre of Australia, where at picturesque Kings Canyon she must confront the horrifying secrets of her past.

From the best-selling author of Tracking North comes an evocative and heartfelt story about how in the remotest of places lives can be lost...and found.

Critic Reviews

"Kerry McGinnis writes like poetry.... The way she recalls places and feelings and is able to write about them with such authority is why she stands out among Australian authors." (Fleur McDonald, best-selling author of Where the River Runs)

Recovery of self

Tragic circumstances and how the past redirected the future of a whole group of people. The setting was truly Australian and brought back memories of living in a marginal farming climate in western NSW. Definitely not a lifestyle many managed to get past 6 months, let alone years.
