The sequel to Tears of the Moon – a favourite for all Di Morrissey readers.
The Kimberley – from the red desert to the remote town of Broome – is the backdrop for Kimberley Sun. This is the enthralling story of modern relationships and the unbreakable ties we all have to the past.
Lily Barton is beautiful, adventurous and 50-something. She is looking for a complete life change. Sami, her daughter, is 30, driving alone through the outback and finally, reluctantly, confronting her family roots. Together they are swept into a world where legends, myths and reality start to converge.
Those who come into their orbit bring stories that change each of them. From Farouz, the old Afghan camel driver, to Bobby, the Chinese/Aboriginal man who is tangled in the murder of a German tourist, to Biddy, the survivor from Captain Tyndall and Olivia's era... and who is the mysterious artist hiding in the desert? All have a secret and all have a story to tell until each finds their place under the Kimberley sun.
