AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When Allie Baxter moves to Australia from London she feels compelled to seek out her childhood friend Jessie. After a quarter of a century, much has changed. Allie, a journalist, is trapped in an unsatisfying marriage. Jessie has reinvented herself as the magnetic Belle Cullen, her life dedicated to her thriving cosmetics empire and a private life veiled in secrecy.

'But how much has really changed? Behind Jessie’s glamour and Allie’s precarious control, two little girls are still playing out dangerous games. As Allie probes further into her friend’s hidden life, she discovers a dark world that forces her to the brink of a fateful choice.

'The White Star is an engrossing story about the unraveling of damaged lives and the sinister face of charisma. "Beauty is soul deep" is Jessie’s mantra. But childhood fears can run even deeper.'
