Women’s Fiction (2021)
A forgotten necklace. A family secret. Two women hiding from the truth.
When successful Sydney lawyer Miranda McIntyre searches for something old to go with her wedding dress, she remembers an antique necklace from her childhood. Her mother’s denial of its existence only deepens Miranda’s curiosity but the discovery of a faded wedding photo and an old newspaper clipping reveal long-buried family secrets.
Who is the woman in the photo? And why are these keepsakes hidden in her mother’s closet?
Miranda’s quest for the truth takes her on a road trip south to the idyllic seaside village of Pelican Point where she stumbles upon a secluded cliff-top cottage and the reclusive Esther Wilson. As Miranda begins to unravel the mystery, a tale of daring rescue, forbidden love and shocking betrayal unfolds.
Meeting enigmatic horse trainer Vincent Kennedy forces Miranda to question the life she has worked so hard to create, throwing into turmoil everything she thought she knew about the past and about herself.
A multi-generational story of family, hope and following your heart.
Wow. This book will have you hooked from start to finish. Following the lives of Esther and Miranda and all the things that they both go through will have you turning the pages into the wee hours to find out what happens. Pamela Cook is an amazing story teller. A must read for all.”
