The Last Anniversary
The formidable Connie Thrum of Scribbly Gum Island is the chief decision-maker of an unconventional family. It's been over seventy years since she and her sister Rose visited their neighbours and found a baby waking for her feed, but no sign of her parents. The "Munro Baby Mystery" still hasn't been solved. But now Connie has passed away and the island residents ponder her legacy. Sophie Honeywell is looking down the barrel of her fortieth birthday and still hoping for that fairytale ending. Her new friend Grace, the Munro Baby's grand daughter, can't tell anyone what she hopes for. Meanwhile, a frumpy housewife makes a pact with a stranger, an old lady starts making her own decisions and a family secret finally explodes on an extraordinary night of mulled wine, fire-eating and face-painting.
