Set in a farming community on Platypus Island somewhere off the South Australian coast, this story of country life, family mysteries and a young girl's dreams of independence gradually unfolds until it reaches a satisfying conclusion.

Bianka loves her home island, the booming ocean, rocky beaches and ancient caves. But after being stalked by an unsavoury character she broods on escape.

Then, in just three months of spring in her first year at home after high school, Bianka's life turns around. She overhears that she looks like a mysterious ancestor no one wants to discuss. Who was this Flora, this brilliant artist?

Bianka's quest to find out the truth leads her to Tom the Hermit. But hidden secrets await discovery in Flora's ruined, isolated studio. Uncomfortable truths, lies and deceptions come to light. Past and future entwine in a strangely visionary dream in which Bianka comes face to face with herself in another time.

Summer guests arrive. Suddenly the air is thick is with mystery and romance...
