Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Originally published in 2006, this comes back into print for those who may have missed it. Actually she has changed publishers so her new one is reissuing her work. This is a great read, especially astute, and indeed amusing, about a family and their behaviour towards each other. We follow this particular family through four generations. They live on a charming Australian island which they turn into a tourist attraction and build a mystery surrounding an abandoned baby found by one of two sisters in the 1930s. The business becomes very profitable and each year the anniversary of the rescued baby is celebrated … until now. This is truly lovely stuff.

November 2014 Book of the Month.

Synopsis

The Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty

From Liane Moriarty, million copy selling author of The Husband's Secret, comes The Last Anniversary, a captivating story laced with mystery. 'This is your last chance to change your mind, Rose. After today we can't go back. Ever.' Seventy-three years have passed since sisters Rose and Connie found an abandoned baby in the only other house on their little island, Scribbly Gum. With both parents vanished without a trace, Rose and Connie made the decision to take the baby in as their own. And since then the 'Munro Baby Mystery' has brought them fame and fortune. But now, with Connie dead and outsider Sophie Honeywell inheriting her home, Rose begins to wonder if they made the right decision all those years ago. With the anniversary looming, and people still trying to solve the mystery, how much longer can they cover up the lie that has sustained their little community for four generations? And what other secrets are about to be revealed?
