When Sassi Stapleton returns to her family's farm, secrets that will change her future forever are laid bare.
Fleur McDonald's Voices in the Dark is a powerful and poignant rural drama highlighting the complexity of family and misplaced trust.
It delves into unsettling territory when the worst fears of every child who entrusts their parent's care to someone else becomes a haunting reality.
When Sassi's grandmother dies, her mother returns from South Africa and tensions grow between the two, and Sassi's brother Abe.
It becomes clear Sassi's grandfather is unable to live alone and a carer comes into their lives.
Is the person entrusted with his care the one causing him to become withdrawn and bruised, or is the perpetrator closer to home?
Voices in the Dark, by Fleur McDonald (Allen & Unwin) RRP $32.99.
