Sweet Wattle Creek. Kaye Dobbie. 2015.

Regular price $7.00

The chance discovery of an antique wedding dress weaves together the fascinating lives of three women:

Sophie, in hiding from a troubled past;

Belle, who must lose everything to learn what really matters; and

Martha, forced to give up those she loves in order to avoid exposure.

It’s 1931 and Belle Bartolomeo has arrived in rural Sweet Wattle Creek to claim her inheritance-a run-down grand hotel formerly owned by Martha Ambrose. Determined to solve the mystery of her birth and the reason why she was bequeathed the hotel, Belle runs into difficulties with the townsfolk and their desire to keep their secrets safe.

Sixty years later Sophie Mathieson is on a quest to find Belle and her family after discovering the wedding dress. The Sweet Wattle Creek Centenary brings more challenges when her past catches up and she must fight for all that matters to her. Who were Belle and Martha and what links their lives together?
