– SOPHIE GREEN
'I loved it ... I wholeheartedly recommend people read this book!
Have you ever had a secret?
In the small town of Gawler, South Australia, the tang of cut grass and eucalyptus mingle on the warm air. The neat houses perched under the gum trees on Church Street have been home to many over the years. Years of sprinklers stuttering over clipped lawns, children playing behind low brick walls. Family barbecues. Gossipy neighbours. Arguments. Accidents. Births, deaths, marriages. This ordinary street has seen it all.
Until the arrival of newlyweds Thomas and Elsie Mullet.
And when one day Elsie spies a face in the window of the silent house next door – nothing will ever be ordinary again…
In Kim Lock’s third novel of what really goes on behind closed doors, she weaves the tale of three people with one big secret; a story of fifty years of friendship, betrayal, loss and laughter, in a heartwarming depiction of love against the odds.
