Nina never knew what happened to her father, the celebrated artist Jim Larkin. One minute he was her devoted dad, the next he’d disappeared without trace. Seventeen years later, she’s still haunted by the mystery.

Until a call from outback Wandalla changes everything.

At first, Nina’s inheritance of a waterless property and a farmhouse stuffed with junk seems more like a burden than a gift. But this was her father’s childhood home – and possibly her last chance to discover the truth.

So what is the local solicitor, Harrison Grey, not telling her as he hands over the keys? Why does the area’s wealthiest resident, Hilary Flint, seem to hate her so much? What is the significance of the gold locket with cryptic engravings that Nina always wears?

And why, on top of everything, is she inexplicably drawn to her soon-to-be-married neighbour, Heath Blackett?

About the Author

The Painted Sky is the work of five members of a Sydney book club, writing under the collective pseudonym Alice Campion.

Denise Tart is a marriage celebrant with a background in performance and event management. She has written for the theatre and business, but now mainly pens meaningful and romantic ceremonies. Denise loves a good yarn.

Jenny Crocker looks forward to rainy weekends and their potential for endless guilt-free reading. Jenny has been a journalist, public relations manager, non-fiction author and now manages awareness and education campaigns.

Jane St Vincent Welch spent her childhood on an isolated rural property in the New England region of NSW. Jane now works in Sydney as a documentary editor, and enjoys telling stories in pictures and words. She would like to sit on a verandah one day and just paint.

Jane Richards is a senior editor and journalist at Fairfax Media. She loves mysteries and secrets.

Madeline Oliver’s reading group, The Booksluts, germinated the writing group that created this book. Madeline is a Sydney writer who yearns to be under a big sky. She’s working on a young adult novel.

The sequel to The Painted Sky, titled The Shifting Light, will be released in February 2017.
