AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Tessa De Santis's child-free marriage in inner-city Sydney is ordered and comfortable, and she likes it that way.

'When tragedy strikes and her childhood friend Skye Whittaker dies, Tess is bound to honour a promise to become foster-mother to Skye's ten-year-old daughter, Grace, throwing her life upside down.

'Leaving her husband and work-driven life behind, Tess travels to an isolated property where the realities of her friend's life - and death - hit hard. The idyllic landscape and an unexpected form of therapy ease her fears, and her relationship with Grace begins to blossom.

'But a secret from her earlier life with Skye refuses to remain hidden, and Tess is forced into a decision that will either right the wrongs of the past, or completely destroy her future.

'Cross My Heart is a haunting story of guilt, redemption and friendship set in the beautiful central west of New South Wales.' (Publication summary)
