In 1995, in remote British Columbia, a mysterious woman begins letting go of the only person central to her life for eighteen years. On the other side of the continent, Rebecca, her ninety-six year old mother, remembers secrets hidden from her family for decades. Meanwhile, halfway around the world, in Sydney Australia, Rebecca's granddaughter, on the eve of her thirty-third birthday, realises she is still haunted by events that happened during her teenage years. Eluded by happiness following a string of disastrous relationships, Lindsay dives into a quest to understand herself and discover the missing pieces of her life.
This moving tale of joy and sorrow completes the journey - nearly a century later - of much loved characters first introduced in Seldom Come By.

About the Author
In 2006, haunted by an encounter with a woman she met in Canada, Sherryl started what has now become known as The Iceberg Trilogy, about the lives and loves of three generations of women - Rebecca, Evangeline and Lindsay - over the course of a century.
In the telling of their stories she crafted a series rich in landscapes - of sea, land and the human soul. Adventures have been central to her life: climbing Mt Kinabalu in Sabah, trekking to the base camp of Makalu in the Himalayas; and paddling the classic Bowron Lakes canoe circuit in British Columbia, a location that features in two of her novels.
Her formative years were spent on a farm in Cedar Pocket, in South-East Queensland, once home to large stands of one of Australia's few native deciduous trees, the Red Cedar. After time abroad in New Zealand and Hong Kong, Sherryl once more lives in Queensland, where she is a partner in a marketing agency and in her spare time at work on her next novel.
