Summary
It has been six months since Tes Müller stopped speaking. Her silence is baffling to her parents, her teachers and her younger sister, Meg. The girls' secluded lives in a northern rainforest town are shaken up when their father, Stefan, discovers human remains on their farm. As locals in the transient community speculate on who has gone missing, Tess and Meg have a more urgent mystery. Where does their mother, Evangeline, go each day, pushing an empty pram and returning home muddy and dishevelled?
