It must be the magical Mudgee effect! My debut novel SPLINTERED HEART which I wrote after leaving Sydney has recently been a BEST SELLER on AMAZON. Set in the 1960’s, it follows the journey of a young girl sexually abused in the family home and then sent to Parramatta Girls Home for reform. It is a punitive and humiliating experience and the Home was eventually closed down in 1974 after a Royal Commission. Some 30,000 young girls went through that home.
I have just finished the sequel SINISTER INTENT which is very powerful and should be out late 2020.
