Thirty years later, Frances and her family have moved into Hilltop View, the Richardson home. The peaceful surroundings have helped her to recover from a mother’s worst nightmare, the unsolved disappearance of Steven, one of her sons. A series of bush fires that threaten Harrison’s Way makes the hot summer seem even hotter. Are these the natural byproduct of the hot Tasmanian summers—or is an arsonist at work?
In the days of a new millennium, Frances now faces life in a nursing home as she battles the scourge of dementia. Susanne, her widowed daughter, has challenges of her own with a new beau, who may not be all he seems. Frances, despite her fleeting grip on reality, cannot let the past hurts go. What happened to her son?
