“A year is a long time in the memory of a small town. Stories get twisted, truths become warped, history is rewritten…”
This week we have three copies to be won of Australian author and AWC alumni Sandie Docker’s latest novel – The Banksia Bay Beach Shack. Sandie previously wrote 2018’s bestselling The Kookaburra Creek Cafe. (Keen to learn more about Sandie’s road to publication? Check out her story on our blog right now.)
When Laura discovers an old photo of her grandmother, Lillian, with an intriguing inscription on the back, she heads to the sleepy seaside town of Banksia Bay to learn the truth of Lillian’s past. But when she arrives, Laura finds a community where everyone seems to be hiding something.
Virginia, owner of the iconic Beach Shack café, has kept her past buried for sixty years. As Laura slowly uncovers the tragic fragments of that summer so long ago, Virginia must decide whether to hold on to her secrets or set the truth free.
Young Gigi and Lily come from different worlds but forge an unbreakable bond – the ‘Sisters of Summer’. But in 1961 a chain of events is set off that reaches far into the future. One lie told. One lie to set someone free. One lie that changes the course of so many lives.
