Di Morrissey is one of the most successful and prolific authors Australia has ever produced. She trained as a journalist, working in newspapers, magazines television, film, theatre and advertising around the world. It was her fascination with different countries; their landscape, their cultural, political and environmental issues that has been the catalyst for her novels, which are all inspired by a particular landscape. Di has been a tireless and passionate advocate and activist for many causes from being Patron of the Southern Cross University Whale Research Centre, opposing large scale development and commercial food chains into Byron Bay NSW, to fighting to save the Kimberley from gas and mining intrusion into sacred lands, and to stopping massive and unnecessary power lines intruding into the Manning Valley NSW. Di has also established The Golden Land Education Foundation, helping build a school in Myanmar.

But when the family patriarch dies a devastating family secret is revealed which threatens to destroy her dreams. Cassie’s future happiness now rests on her quest for the truth...
