Blackwattle Lake - Pamela Cook
A captivating story about learning to forgive
Eve took a deep breath and stepped down from the kombi. Everything inside her was shaking. Maybe being back here again wasn't going to be as easy as she'd thought.
For Eve Nicholls, walking up the driveway of her childhood home brings up many emotions, and not all good. The horses that she loved still dot the paddocks but the house is empty, and the silence inside allows her memories to flood back. She's glad to have her best friend Banjo the kelpie with her . . . and a bottle of bourbon. Her plan is simple: sell the farm, grab the cash and get the hell out.
Despite Eve's desire to keep a low profile, within days of her return she runs into all the people she hoped to avoid.
At the house she is surrounded by memories and worse. But with a lifetime of clutter to sort out, there's plenty to take her mind off it all. Slowly, she begins to discover the girl she used to be: Angie Flanagan - adventurous, animal-loving, vulnerable. When tragedy strikes, Eve realises that changing her name all those years ago in an attempt to hide from her past has not changed the truth of what happened or who she really is.
Blackwattle Lake is an engaging debut for those who long to uncover who they used to be, and who they might still become.
