A tale which will hold its listeners spellbound.' Kerry Green, SUNDAY REVIEW
When an archaeology student, hoping to learn about his Aboriginal heritage, comes to work near their isolated town, sixteen-year-old friends Sarah and Rachel discover why the man known as the Father has had such control over their lives.
Cut off from the world by sea and swamp, the people of New Canaan submit to the oppressive will of the enigmatic Father . But when the signs appear, first in the sky, then in the sea, then in the trembling earth, there are two who know the Father s days are numbered Rachel Burgess and Sarah Goodwin, born only hours apart. Might they be the ones to drive the Father to his fall? Or might it be Sam Shadows, drawn into the net by some greater force? And so the mysteries of New Canaan, that other country, are revealed.
