Small country towns are places where everyone knows everyone else’s business. They are places where, if someone makes a name for themselves, there is an element of the ‘Tall Poppy Syndrome’. Kinsale is just such a town which has recently suffered a tragic bushfire, the residents lodging a class action case against the large corporation responsible.
Eliza Carmody returns to Kinsale as a successful lawyer and the townsfolk gradually realise that she is acting for the enemy. Add to this some juicy family secrets and some old flames and you get a thoroughly entertaining page turner.
