Summary

A gripping story of small-town life from the best-selling author of One Sunday and Mallawindy.

For 44 years Stella Templeton has been a dutiful daughter and a good citizen living in Maidenville, population 2,800, a town where nothing happens. Until one hot summer afternoon...An ugly act has lifted the respectable skirts of Maidenville and mystery starts to surround the daughter of the local minister.

Then the disappearance of a 16-year-old-boy adds to the neighbourhood's confusion. Does something sinister lurk behind the neatly trimmed hedges and white picket fences that divide this sleepy town?

No one comes close to knowing the horrifying truth - but after 44 years of self denial and duty, Stella Templeton is finally beginning to blossom.

Critic reviews

"Dettman...is brilliant at depicting the seemingly inconsequential murmurs of small-town life. A gripping small-town mystery." ( Sun-Herald)
