"First published in Australia in 2014 by Affirm Press"--Title page verso.
For readers of Atonement, a powerful and haunting debut story of three sisters and their friend who grow up on the outskirts of their parents' glamorous bohemian lifestyle. On her first day at a new school, Lily befriends one of the daughters of infamous avant-garde painter Evan Trentham. In an attempt to escape the stifling conservatism of 1930s Australia, Evan and his wife create a wild, makeshift family of like-minded artists, all living and working together. An only child, Lily becomes infatuated with the Trenthams' creative chaos and longs to fully belong. But as the years pass, she sees how themes in their art begin to shape real lives.
