The valley is nestled between rugged peaks, divided by a magnificent river. Within its peaceful green contours are held the secrets of generations of tribes, families and loners who have come under its spell. But some secrets are never shared, never told. Until one woman returns and begins asking questions... and discovers the story of a forgotten valley pioneer whose life becomes entwined with hers. But in looking into her own family's history she uncovers more than she ever expected - and what her mother hoped would always remain a secret.

Di Morrissey is one of the most successful authors Australia has ever produced. She trained as a journalist, working in the media around the world. Her fascination with different countries; their landscape, their cultural, political and environmental issues, forms the inspiration for her novels. Di is a tireless activist for many causes: opposing large scale development and commercial food chains into Byron Bay NSW, fighting gas and mining intrusion into sacred lands in the Kimberly, and stopping massive and unnecessary power lines intruding into the Manning Valley NSW. Di also established The Golden Land Education Foundation in Myanmar. Di lives in the Manning Valley,From AudioFile:
This Australian saga sweeps along as each generation's story comes alive with personalities and visual descriptions of the land. The legends and myths that bind the story relate both to the white ranchers' arrival and to the aboriginal knowledge that is treated by consecutive generations as either a fabulous asset or a dangerous taboo. There are several story lines running through the novel, and they do not necessarily end up converging, but Kate Hood's various voices add richness to the variety of experiences. Whether reading of murderous criminals bent on destroying Isabella Kelly, one of the original settlers, or a twenty-first-century architect bent on developing the valley, Hood maintains the listener's attention.
