A timely and profound novel that entrances and entertains.

In Melbourne, a baby girl is found abandoned in the Victorian Art Gallery. She is wrapped in a shawl decorated with a motif that links her to ancient rock paintings in the Kimberley...

In Los Angeles, a movie producer's dying daughter is haunted by nightmares after visiting the Kimberley...

And it is to the Kimberley that ex-nun Beth Van Horton brings a disparate group of travellers whose lives will be changed forever.

The Kimberley – a land that cradles Australia's ancient treasures – is also home to a people whose powerful secrets could unlock the future for modern mankind.

About the Author

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, NSW.

    First time I had read a Di Morrissey novel and I expected more. It was hard to get into but towards the end I couldn't put it down.
