If you like romantic tales of mystery involving old diaries, lost letters, family secrets – and the occasional murder – then you just might enjoy my first novel Thornwood House … I hope so!
The story is set in south-eastern Queensland in a small fictional community called ‘Magpie Creek’, which is based on the real township of Boonah. The main story is contemporary – a woman inherits an old homestead, falls in love with a photo and starts digging into the past. Her search uncovers all sorts of mayhem, and endangers not only herself but the people she loves.
The contemporary story is woven through with two other plotlines – the viewpoint of a young woman in the 1940s, and a girl’s diary from the 1990s.
