Eight years after the mysterious disappearance of her much-loved brother Eliot, Cate McConville finally returns to the family farm – only to discover her ageing parents want to sell it and sever her only remaining link to him.
Forced back to the landscape of her childhood Cate is haunted by memories of Eliot and all that has kept her away. Determined to find her brother and retain the property, she enlists the help of family friend Mellor, her aunt Natalie, and Finchley, the man who has followed her from Sydney on a whim.
All have secrets of their own to hide, but Cate senses it's the land itself that holds the key to unlocking Eliot's fate, and the part of her that went with him.
Entitlement is a compelling story about loss, the heart, and the meaning of home.
