The long-awaited and highly anticipated new novel from one of Australia’s most beloved bestselling authors.

At the age of 85, Lola Quinlan is going home, travelling to Ireland for the first time since she emigrated to Australia as a twenty-year-old. What – and who – will be waiting for her there, alongside her memories?

Meanwhile, back home in the Clare Valley, the arrival of a TV company filming a murder mystery set in the wine-making world has sent the locals into a spin. Who is the mystery scriptwriter? And how did he or she find out all their secrets?

The highly anticipated new blockbuster novel from the beloved author of The Alphabet Sisters and Lola's Secret, this is a rich and highly entertaining story about family, love, lies and memories, and the true meaning of 'home'.
