A brilliantly written, suspense-filled journey of the two teenager 'Slender sisters,' Nancy and Mary and how one days events altered their entire futures.
Secrets are important to keep, in a small Western NSW town like Coonabarabran, because when gossip gets out of hand, it travels faster and with more fate-altering consequences than if the local sheep were to escape their paddocks.
The writing style is addictive and brings the emotional responses out that I'm sure the author Steele, expected. Although there are still many unanswered questions by the time you get to the end of this 30 year saga, it is nevertheless a riveting read. I found myself trying to figure out what had happened to their mother on that fate-altering night... what had their dad done and finally, what had the girls done to one of the main suspects (suspected months later, after the girls mother Tamara, disappeared). Answers are hinted at and some are not, but ultimately what you think may have happened, may not have. Things come to head when a stranger arrives in town, who is seeking innocent enough information, but what he finds, is certainly not innocent!
I highly recommend this book to lovers of suspense, Australian heritage and thrilling mysteries.
