Overview

Mickey Cunningham wants to be a journalist. She's ambitious and smart, and she's already talked her way into a part-time job at one of Melbourne's top newspapers while she's finishing her journalism degree. Even so, she's stunned when Des, her editor, offers her a feature article. Bay a fifteen-year-old girl called Julie Sheehan says that Our Lady has appeared to her in a vision. Mickey knows Apollo Bay well. It was there, three years ago, that she made the most difficult decision of her short life. And she has never been back since. By accepting the assignment, she accepts a painful journey into her past. Told with immense sensitivity, this is a story of faith and delusion, innocence and the healing power of revealing the truth.
