The Family Secret




The highly anticipated new Christmas release from Penguin's bestselling rural romance writer.

From one of Australia’s favourite storytellers comes a heartwarming story spanning three generations about when to fight and when to surrender – and how new love can heal old wounds.

Kim Richards is a creative woman of the land, a rural ambassador who’s renowned for her contribution to her community. But deep down, she’s lonely. She’s already watched the man she loves falls for someone else, and her dream of starting her own family feels like it’s slipping through her fingers.

Enter Charlie McNamara, an older man who’s arrived in Lake Grace on business. Sparks fly between Kim and Charlie, but he seems to have a hidden agenda and a past life he’s trying to hide.

They’re both drawn to local hermit Harry, a Vietnam veteran who’s haunted by memories from the war. What ties these lost souls together? Can they solve a long-held family mystery and heal fractures of the heart?

‘Fiona Palmer has well and truly earned her place as a leading writer of one of Australia’s much loved genres.’ Countryman
