Abstract:

Bettina Whitelaw is a grand dame of the English literary scene. Approaching eighty, she embarks on the painful process of writing her memoirs and finds her past coming back to haunt her. She was brought up in Bundaroo, a small town in the Australian outback, before escaping at sixteen to begin her literary career in Europe. When her former housekeeper is the victim of a violent attack, Bettina begins to realise that she herself is in serious danger - a danger that has its roots in a small, dusty outback town.
