FROM the author of Stillwater Creek comes The Indigo Sky, based on the same characters and in the same place as its predecessor.
Four years after Ilona and her daughter Zidra moved to Jingera, a fictional town on the New South Wales south coast, they have been embraced by the community and forged a new life for themselves. For Ilona, this means newfound peace and a loving husband, while for Zindra it’s the heady time of life when the world order is questioned and seems to be ever-changing. But when Ilona becomes involved in the plight of two other children, peace is suddenly far from home in her quiet town.

Imbued with a strong sense of place and believable characters, The Indigo Sky is a heartfelt novel of family, friendships and community and ultimately, an enjoyable read.

Available from good bookstores and Random House.
