1969 and seventeen-year-old Faith was desperate to escape the confines of Willow Tree Bend and her mother Lily. Melbourne beckoned and Faith didn’t look back as she headed for the bright lights and excitement – the beginning of her new life she thought. When her cousin Kitty managed to procure her a waitressing job in a nightclub called The Angel, Faith had no idea how much it was destined to change her life.
With Hope’s arrival imminent and her mother missing, Sam was agitated and anxious. Her father didn’t seem to know where Faith was; her grandmother Lily was acting strangely and she wasn’t sure how to take the new neighbour. But Sam knew there were secrets in her family’s past – the little snippets of information she’d managed to glean proved it. But what could she do about it? How could she find her mother? And what was really behind Hope’s sudden home-coming?
Willow Tree Bend by Aussie author Kaye Dobbie is an excellent blend of historical fiction and intriguing mystery. Set in the past with Faith and the current day with both Hope and Sam, the novel flowed well and kept the tension ramped up. The slow-release of events was wonderful – it was hard to put the book down when I wanted to know what was coming next. I thoroughly enjoy this author’s work, and Willow Tree Bend was no exception. Highly recommended.
I did find the storyline to be a little slow in places but there were enough hints along the way to keep my interest piqued.
A few things are left unanswered and left me wanting more, a few more chapters to answer these would have been nice, but this novel isn't a cliffhanger so I guess I'll never know.
Overall this is a well written mystery with a little romance thrown in. I'll definitely read more from this author.
