While Rose was looking forward to celebrating their 21st wedding anniversary, her husband, Lewis, remained cold and detached, his manner increasingly distant from the entire family. Rose knew that Lewis carried his wartime experiences deep within – experiences he chose not to share. But there always seemed to be an even deeper secret, something more personal.
The opening chapter fills the reader with a sense of foreboding that is not softened by the excellent and evocative imagery throughout this novel of a family farming in southern Tasmania in the 1960s.
Worm in the Bud – set in the farmlands of southern Tasmania.
