Rachael is a child prodigy, a talented artist whose maturity and eloquence is far beyond her fourteen years. She's also energetic, charming and beautiful, beguiling everyone around her. To her mother, Camille, she is perfect. But perfection requires work, as Camille knows all too well.

For Rachael has another extraordinary gift: a murky one that rears its head from time to time, threatening to unbalance all the family has been working towards. When Rachael accuses her art teacher of sexual misconduct, Wolfe and Camille are drawn into a complex web of secrets and lies that pit husband against wife, and have the power to destroy all their lives.

Set in contrasting worlds of Australia and Paris, told from the perspective of husband and wife, Rachael's Gift is a detective story of the heart, about a mother's uncompromising love for her daughter and a father's quest for the truth.

Read Caroline Baum's Review

A great premise sets up this debut novel: what happens when the parents of a gifted teenager realise that her main talent is telling lies? And not just little ones, but whoppers that destroy other people’s lives. The psychological hook of this debut novel is unsettlingly plausible.
