Publisher's Summary

You can never go back - but can you forgive? A gripping story of love and redemption.

The Brennans - parents, Finn and Bridget, and their sons, Jarrah and Toby - have made a sea change, from chilly Hobart to subtropical Murwillumbah. Feeling like foreigners in this land of sun and surf, they're still adjusting to work, school, and life in a sprawling purple weatherboard, when one morning, tragedy strikes.

In the devastating aftermath, the questions fly. What really happened? And who's to blame?

Determined to protect his family, Finn finds himself under the police and media spotlight. Guilty and enraged, Bridget spends nights hunting answers in the last place imaginable. Jarrah - his innocence lost - faces a sudden and frightening adulthood where nothing is certain.

Sixty Seconds is a haunting, redemptive story about forgiveness and hope, inspired by the author's own family experience.

Critic Reviews

"It is, quite simply, a masterpiece." (Kate Forsyth)

"A captivating, visceral, beautifully written story of a family navigating a nightmare. The characters were so real and relatable that I was riveted, thoroughly invested in each of their journeys. Jesse Blackadder is a powerful storyteller writing from her heart and experience." (Robyn Harding, international best-selling author of The Party)

"A beautiful work. One of the most moving and artistically satisfying endings I've read in a long while." (Susan Johnson, Courier Mail)
