AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The wind is whispering in Woody Creek... Change is in the air.

'It's 1958 and Woody Creek is being dragged - kicking and screaming - into the swinging sixties.

'Jenny's daughters, Cara and Georgie, are now young women. They have inherited their mother's hands, but that is where their similarity ends. Raised separately, they have never met.

'A mistake from Cara's teenage years looms over her future, but she believes emphatically in the white wedding and happily ever after myth. Georgie has seen enough of marriage and motherhood. She plans to live her life as her grandmother did, independent of a man.

'But life for the Morrison girls has never been easy, and once the sisters are in each other's lives, long-buried secrets are bound to be unearthed, the dramatic consequences of which no-one could have predicted...' (From the publisher's website.)
