This book is a work of fiction set in the small, rural town of Waroona in the 1970’s. The story follows the experiences of the main character, Emilia (Milly) Garcia, and her best friend, Patricia (Patty) Brennan. Milly is trying to come to terms with her Italian heritage, the unfamiliar emotions of adolescence, and her attraction to Patty’s brother, Flynn. Should she let her feelings for Flynn be known and risk rejection? Or should she keep the attraction a secret and suffer in silence?
Meanwhile, Milly discovers some of the secrets hidden behind closed doors, and realises that not all families are happy ones.
With a succession of worrying events, she struggles to find answers. It doesn’t help when she receives messages from the ‘other-side’ but can’t stop the bad things happening.
Whilst coming to terms with loss and attempting to release the past, Milly finds she is bound by promises of the heart.
