From 'The Queen' of novels about family and relationships, Geelong best selling author Fiona Lowe. Waurn Ponds Library

What really lies beneath the idyllic facade of this small town? From 'The Queen' of novels about family and relationships, Geelong best selling author Fiona Lowe.

A picturesque small town, a cosy community garden, a facade of tolerance and acceptance - but when three women with wildly different loyalties come together, what secrets and lies will be revealed? Can such disparate women unite to save the garden and ultimately stop the town from tearing itself apart?

A timely novel exploring prejudice and privilege, from bestselling Australian author Fiona Lowe. Geelong based Fiona has been a midwife, a sexual health counsellor and a family support worker; an ideal career for an author who writes novels about family and relationships. Previous novels include Just an Ordinary Family, Home Fires and Birthright, to name a few.
