1950 and Flis is returning to Australia after almost twenty years away in Wellington, New Zealand. In all that time she has had no contact with her younger sister Gladdie who is missing, presumed dead. Flis is determined to find out what happened to her. Accompanied by a young ma...n met on the voyage across the Tasman, Flis and her husband Kip travel to the deserted family farm at the foot of the Blue Mountains.Or is it deserted? Old neighbours with an adopted Aboriginal daughter, an eccentric living in the hills, a pair of half-tamed dingoes and a shifty lawyer form mysterious and uneasy company. The farmhouse holds its own secrets - a blossoming wattle grows from a hole in the floor, an ancient Scottish bed proves the recent presence of a child and the cellar is alive with relics.The thousands of reads that enjoyed Lily's first book 'Jarulan By the River' will love 'The Sisters' Lover.' Wildlife, revenge, fleeting and enduring love, old magic and new understanding combine to tell a story spun from a vanishing Australia.What the critics said about 'Jarulan By the River''A whole-hearted, red-blooded, big-bosomed, broad-shouldered sprawl.' David Hill, New Zealand Herald.'There are passions and property, sex and subterfuge. Peacocks scream. Virginities are taken. There are legitimate and illegitimate children. Races mingle. Captive koalas whimper and Rotorua sp-baths steam.' David Herkt, Sunday Star Times.'Woodhouse's novel is a big story, replete with juicy episodes and high drama in a place where nature and history bring unexpected outcomes.' Mick O'Regan, The Bungalow Herald.
