The journey that changes her life...
A young Australian woman leaves Sydney for a new world... Guyana, South America.
Captivated by Guyana's wild, unspoilt beauty, Madison Wright Jones joins the native Amerindians struggling to preserve their culture against corporate exploitation. But her new-found commitment soon plunges Madison into a mire of murder, drug smuggling and political corruption. And finally, an unexpected love that pits her heart against her beliefs.
From Sydney's sparkling harbour to the lush rainforests of South America, When the Singing Stops is a triumph of storytelling.
