Kerrie, in her 40s, has just lost her famous sculptor husband who had been the centre of her existence and for whom she made many sacrifices and she now finds her life has lost direction. Shirley, approaching 80, was betrayed by her lover many years before and has retreated from the world, becoming a recluse living in an underground dugout. Anna, 19, has a promising athletic career but is torn between the commitment to her sport which could carry her to the Olympics, or enjoying life like other young people. The friendship that develops between these three women, who meet in the strangely beautiful but desolate landscape of the opal fields, helps them resolve and come to terms with the next stage of their lives.

Ann Lee on
A fantastic read about three women that form friends a varying stages of their
lives. Shirley is loved by all out in the opal fields and one way or another
Kerrie and Anna, both end up meeting Shirley and although all at different
times in their lives they help each other and form great friendship bonds.
A wonderful read, I had lumps in my throat and tears streaming down my cheeks.
I have never read any of Di Morrissey's books before, but now I'm going too,
for sure.
If you can get your hands on a copy of this book, grab it and read it.
