'a masterful mystery that keeps you guessing.' -The Guardian

'Wolhuter combines an entrancing and often startling plot-which interlaces multiple storylines-with memorable imagery and rhythmic prose, and her deft hand at drawing complex characters makes Shadows of Winter Robins a gripping and highly recommended read for fans of Liane Moriarty and Holly Ringland.' -Books + Publishing

Sometimes you must shine a light on the dark places to see what was always there .

'Nancy won't be coming home.'

And there it is: that pip of a moment. That instant. That fraction of a second. That weightless stillness at the very top of a ball's bounce, between its going up and falling down.

My brother and I held hands, suspended somewhere in between the life we'd led as Nancy's children, and the one we were destined to live thereafter.

Winter Robins is a happy enough child, growing up in the north of England, with parents who love her and the constant companion of a twin brother, but a cold wind blows through when her mother dies. Her father turns to the bottle, her grandmother struggles to cope, and she and her brother are sent to live in Western Australia with family their mother had never mentioned.

Although Winter quickly settles in Australia and comes to love her life and the people in it, she notices strange happenings in the shadows of her new home. When a news story prompts her to look back at her past, she begins to wonder whether things were really as idyllic as she remembers them.

As she uncovers secret after secret, she realises a much darker narrative may have been - and perhaps still is - playing out ...

'A deeply evocative, hauntingly nostalgic and profoundly unsettling mystery.' - Sulari Gentill, author of The Woman in The Library

'Wolhuter's distinctive voice and her beautiful prose had me immersed and lingering on every page.' - Shankari Chandran, author of Chai Time at Cinnamon Gardens

'Wolhuter's prose burns through the pages in this entertaining and sometimes dark combination of mystery and literary fiction' - The Australian

'It's a finely wrought mystery notable for unusual depth of character - a slow burn with unexpected twists.' - Sydney Morning Herald
